Language and culture

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.

Of course, learning a different language is not just for overseas travellers. You may want to gain a greater appreciation of your heritage, speak with friends from other countries, or you may simply enjoy the intellectual stimulation of learning another way to communicate.

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. Learn language the smart way with language and culture courses at CCE, the University of Sydney.
