The Language Centre offers a variety of commercial language courses and language-related professional training. We are part of the Department of Languages, Information and Communications which allows us to deliver research-informed teaching and draw on the expertise of academics in the field of language learning and teaching.

The Language Centre delivers a wide range of British Council-accredited 'English as a Foreign Language' courses (EFL, EAP and ESP) to current and prospective Manchester Met students, as well as for a number of high-profile external clients from around the globe. See our English Courses.

The Centre is also home to a thriving modern foreign language programme, which is open to the general public and for which Manchester Met students, staff and alumni can benefit from a discounted fee. Check out our Evening Classes in Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Italian, French or Spanish. All classes are taught by native speakers of the language.

Our teachers are qualified teaching professionals with many having experience themselves of learning a second or third language, and studying and working abroad. We also have a high number of native foreign language-speaking staff who lend the Centre a truly international and multicultural atmosphere.
