Modern Languages Teaching Centre
The Modern Languages Teaching Centre (MLTC) exists to offer modules of languages to non-specialists who wish to add a language capability to their skills. These modules can be taken as unrestricted credits wherever there is provision for these within a student´s degree programme. The modules are assessed and the marks obtained become part of the student's overall degree performance. Students can also self-fund modules if they wish to study a language outside of their degree course.
The MLTC offers modules for students at a variety of stages of linguistic competence: beginners, GCSE level, A level, A level plus one further year, A level plus two further years. French, German, Spanish and Italian are offered from all these starting points; Arabic is offered at beginners, post-beginners and GCSE level; Latin is offered for beginners and post-beginners. Apart from 'conventional' language modules, there are also Project modules and Tandem learning modules, which involves bilingual collaborative learning with a native-speaker partner. To enhance student employability the MLTC also offers a 10-credit module in Intercultural Awareness with a Language (also available for self-funders).
The MLTC also provides self-access resources to a wide range of language materials in many languages. For more information contact the MLTC (telephone 0114 222 0630; email: MLTC@Sheffield.ac.uk) or visit the MLTC website:
