How you learn:
Language Portfolio allows you to learn a language at a time and pace that suits you, through flexible web-based learning alongside your degree, from beginners, through intermediate to advanced level. This programme is available at all campuses; Colchester, Southend and Loughton.
Using well-established academic language learning software from Rosetta Stone, you can study French, German or Spanish at any level from beginner to advanced. After an initial assessment to establish your level, your language tutor will develop a tailor-made learning programme for you.
Prior to your assessment, your tutor will provide you with guidance on using the Rosetta Stone software and completing the initial online assessment. Your tutor will monitor your progress and support you throughout the course so there is no need to worry about being left on your own. You can also contact your tutor at any time via email and Moodle. For extra support you can arrange to speak with your tutor in-person in the LfA office or via Zoom.
When you learn:
You'll be expected to do between two and three hours of online exercises per week in order to progress to a sufficient standard. Your tutor will assign weekly lessons for you to complete - how and when you undertake your study is up to you.
