How to sign up for language learning or English language support

To get started with language learning, go to Brightspace and select Library & Study Support then Languages@BU. This will open our Library Guide to Languages@BU.

Register your interest by clicking on "Begin" in the sign-up section on the guide's home page. This way we know how many students and staff are interested in language learning and are in a better position to help you. Once you have registered, we will invite you to an induction or arrange a 1-1 meeting where we can explain in more detail how everything works and give you some tips and advice towards successful language learning. Inductions take place several times per week in the first few weeks of both the autumn and spring terms. Timetables and sign-up sheets for these inductions are also available on the Languages@BU library guide. At other times of the year you can make 1-1 appointments with Paul Barnes, the Language Adviser.

English language support

Once you have registered for English language support you will be  able to sign up for the workshop programme, request 1-1 meetings with the Language Adviser, and access a wide range of useful resources to improve your English language skills.
