Please note: When registering you will first need to choose the town or city in which you want to take the course, then the language level (A1 – beginner; A2 – elementary; B1 – intermediate; B2 – upper-intermediate; C1 – advanced). Then choose suitable days of the week and times and a suitable venue.

In order to choose the right level you should check your language level by taking a test that you are given 20 minutes to complete.

A few pointers for those registering for courses

How do I register? 

1. First, select the region or city in which you want to take your course.

2. Next, check your language level – the placement test is linked to the registration form.

3. Once your language level has been determined, you will be offered a range of courses to choose from. Simply choose the course that best suits you in terms of language level and location.

4. Then add (in Latin script) your first name and surname, ID code, e-mail address and telephone number.

5. Please note: you need to fill in all of the fields.

6. Places on the courses will be filled in order of registration, with up to 16 people on the preliminary list and a further five people on the back-up list for each group. Those registered on this list will commence studies within one month of a course starting in the event that someone from the main list fails to attend the course or drops out i.e. frees up a place, which is then offered to someone on the back-up list. 

7. After this you will see a message on the screen telling you whether your registration was successful. You will also receive an e-mail to this effect. An automated message will note the start date, venue and contact details for your course.
