What can I study?
Whether you're a complete beginner or are looking for a degree or professional qualification, The Open University can provide a flexible way of achieving your goals. You'll develop proficiency in all four skills - reading, writing, speaking and listening. Some of our courses offer a week at a residential school in a country where the language is spoken too.
We offer courses from beginners to graduate level in French, German and Spanish; beginners' and intermediate courses in Italian; and beginners' courses in Chinese. We also offer degrees where you can combine either two modern languages (from French, German and Spanish) or one modern language and English.
