Independent language learning
You can access free learning material and advice for independent language study at the Language Zone.
The Language Zone gives you access to free resources to help you learn a language. It is open to all students and staff at Leeds and provides learning material in more than 50 languages. We're located on the second floor of the Parkinson Building – campus map link. You can find information about our opening times, as well as links to online activities and materials, on our Minerva pages. You can also contact us by email: email@example.com
We have a computer cluster for personal study, and books, magazines, audio and video resources to help you learn a language. Check what you can access on the library's online catalogue.
Workshops and activities
We have a range of workshops, language groups and advice drop-ins to help you study. You can find details of our events, such as Conversation Club, on our Minerva pages.
The Language Exchange allows language learners to get in touch with native speakers, offering conversation and practice in their own language in exchange for practice in their target language. Find out more about the Language Exchange.
Language Groups Programme
Language Groups are weekly conversation groups, led by student volunteers who are native speakers of the language. They facilitate friendly relaxed sessions on topics such as student life and cross-cultural experience.
They are a great way to meet new people who share your passion for learning languages, and a chance to learn things about a language and culture you might not find in textbooks and formal language classes.
