Welcome to our European Language website.

Our main languages are Spanish, French, German, Italian and Portuguese, but we do also offer courses in other languages such as Arabic, Greek, Latin, Polish, Russian, Swedish, Finnish and Dutch.

Our award-bearing courses, which last 120 hours each, are mostly CEF-certified, with well-developed curricula and assessment systems which cover various aspects of the European languages including reading, writing, listening, speaking, grammar and vocabulary. 

Besides, we have shorter courses of just 30 hours, more casual and non-exam based, such as courses for travellers or for beginners, courses in the mornings or during the weekends.

Finally, you can´t miss out on our fun workshops, such as Italian Fashion, Food and Drink, Cooking courses and our several cultural gatherings during the year for each of our main languages!

Our teachers are passionate and committed to the language learning and will guide you through your journey at HKU SPACE!
