Welcome to our European Language website.

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

Our award bearing courses last either 60 or 120 hours and they are mostly award bearing courses, CEF certified, with final examinations, both written,  oral and listening.

Besides, we also 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!
