Welcome to one of most prestigious Institute for the study of modern languages in
Britain. We offer an exceptionally broad range of programmes, students can choose
from Arabic, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, Japanese, and
Russian and you can study these languages, We teach modules on the history, literature
and linguistics of these languages - crucial, we believe, to gaining a full understanding
of any language and its cultural context.
Most of our teaching is done in small groups. Most staff are native-speakers of the
languages they teach and so there is considerable exposure to the languages being
studied, even outside formal language classes. It also makes for a strongly "European"
atmosphere in the Department.
We take seriously our two major commitments: our teaching (our commitment to you,
as students), and our research. You will be taught by top-flight research-active
academics, from year one onwards.
Extensive range of modules include the language, linguistics, history, politics,
philosophy, literature and cinema of the major languages.
