Language and culture. Embrace other worlds.

If you’re heading to another country, your experience will be much richer if you’ve learned to speak the language first. A language and culture course at the Centre for Continuing Education will also immerse you in the fascinating customs and culture of another way of life.

Our experienced teachers can draw on all the resources of the University of Sydney. Enrol in a language and culture course at the Centre for Continuing Education and you’ll be learning a language in the most enjoyable, up-to-date and easiest way possible.
