JTC: 1-to-1 Language Learning Advice

Thu 20 Feb 2020


A 30 minute appointment with a Language Adviser to explore opportunities and resources to help you with your plans and aims for your language learning. We advise on learning strategies across a range of 180+ languages in our learning centre. Click here to view our current index of languages.

These appointments are for advice on learning languages other than English. Should you want support for language skills in English, please do not book into one of these appointments but send your request to instead.

(Please note that if you are seeking advice about our taught courses, you are encouraged to drop in to the Language Centre or book early in the term rather than wait for an appointment. See our website for details.)

Advising appointments can be used to:

  • Decide on your short term and longer term goals
  • Discuss learning strategies for independent language study
  • Formulate a personal learning plan
  • Evaluate your progress so far and identify your next steps
  • Tackle more challenging aspects of your language learning, e.g., strategies for developing listening
  • Talk about ways of shaping a self-study session
  • Explore resources in specialist areas
  • Consider how taught course options in Cambridge can fit in to a longer term plan
  • Find out more about intensive language courses abroad
Target audience

All University members, staff as well as students. N.B. This support is free of charge.
