Most adult learners studying languages do so in their leisure
time. Reasons for learning vary: for promotion at work perhaps, or
to get into a new career. Very often adults study simply as a hobby
or to improve their holiday experience. Increasingly adults are
studying in order to be able to live and work abroad.
Study programmes are often designed to meet the varied needs of
the general public as well as those of people who might be studying
for purposes related to their work. Language courses are provided
by colleges of further education, some schools and sixth form
colleges and Specialist Language Colleges. We’ll show you how to
find these courses. There is also a very large market for
self-study materials, and key providers are listed here.
