Tandem, Project and 40 credit modules

In addition to 20 credit MOMD modules, Languages for All offers Tandem and project modules and intensive 40 credit language modules.

Tandem modules

Currently offered in French, German, Japanese* and Spanish.  These are part of the MOMD programme and are highly flexible, allowing for a wide range of levels.  ERASMUS or Exchange students will normally be paired with a British partner and devise a learning programme in English. In return they will offer tuition in their native language for their British partner. Guidance and supervision will be provided by LfA staff.  Places for tandem learning are very limited each year and we cannot guarantee places.

* for those coming back from a Year Abroad in Japan only

Project module

Currently offered in French, German, and Spanish This is designed for higher level language learners and can be taken as a final year language module by post A-level students. The Project module can also be taken by direct entrants, subject to availability of places and at the discretion of the appropriate Language Co-ordinator.
