Language Skills Development

Studying and researching in another language is an amazing achievement but can be challenging, no matter how fluent you are. The language skills programme aims to support and guide you through some of these challenges.

The programme is delivered by the Languages EAP Team (English for Academic Purposes) and is free for students and researchers of the University of Exeter in Cornwall.

Language in Use

These weekly 60 min workshops are a chance to review grammar, discover new vocabulary and explore functional, everyday language for living in the UK. A great place to ask questions and meet students from across the universities.

Sounds of English

These  workshops focus on the pronunciation and delivery of spoken English, and how to develop your speaking and listening skills. 

Family Classes
