Welcome To The Language Centre Newcastle

About Us

TLC offers the largest provision of language courses in the centre of Newcastle, for anyone interested in learning a new language, brushing up on forgotten skills or just keeping up and developing their proficiency.


Our MFL and ESOL classes focus on speaking, understanding, pronunciation and cultural awareness. However, syntax, grammar, reading and writing are just as important and will be integrated in the coursework.
