About us

Welcome to the Language Lounge!

We are based in a large, light, spacious room overlooking Abercromby Square. The Language Lounge is the ideal setting for a wide range of activities from quiet study to informal get-togethers to group presentations and exhibitions, with a range of comfortable seating and a study area as well as laptops, PCs and iPads available for use.

There is also a large selection of language learning materials in the form of books, magazines, CDs, DVDs & MP3s to borrow as well as advice sheets with tips on language learning in general and on how to develop the skills of reading, writing, listening, and speaking.

We also offer a range of support and advisory services for a wide range of languages, including English, via our Language Advisor service (link), where you can book one-to-one appointments with our language specialists. You can also use the Q&A service* (link) to ask us a question and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can, often straight away during opening hours.

If you are looking for a more informal way to brush up on your language skills, why not sign up for the Tandem Conversation Exchange (link), which matches speakers of different languages for conversation practice. Fill in your details and we will match you up!

And of course, if you have a quick question about studying languages that doesn’t tick any of the boxes above, don’t hesitate to pop in for a quick chat. We are always happy to help where we can, and point you in the right direction if we can’t.

We look forward to meeting you!
