The School of Histories, Languages and Cultures has a team of Language Advisers located in the ShoosmithLanguage Learning Centre - walkway Language Learning Centre, 2nd floor, BJL, Group Room 4, to help students with any aspect of Language Learning, including starting a self-study programme, ensuring time and resources are used effectively and preparing for exams and assessments.  Students can make a 30 minute appointment to speak to an adviser by either using the app on any of the Information Points in the BJL, by using the dedicated electronic diary located in the LLC Quiet Area, 2nd  floor BJL, or by calling in to the Student HUB in Larkin, ground floor room 032 or Student HUB in Wilberforce, 3rd floor, room 360.

If you have any queries about the facilities or support please contact

Drop-in Appointments in the Shoosmith Language Learning Centre

Do you need to practise your listening and speaking skills with a native speaker?  Why not make a 15 minute appointment with one of our drop-in volunteers and build your confidence with speaking and listening?

There are lots of ways to make an appointment. Including:

  • Using the online diary
  • Using any of the Information Points in the BJL
  • The electronic diary in the LLC Quiet Area, 2nd floor BJL 
  • Calling in to the Student HUB in Larkin, ground floor room 032 or Student HUB in Wilberforce, 3rd floor, room 360.

If you are a Hull University Student and your native language is either French, German, Italian or Spanish and you would like to be a drop-in volunteer, please email clearly stating your native language and availability (usually 1-2 hours per week). All drop-in volunteers receive a certificate of participation in the programme.

The Tandem Scheme

The Tandem Scheme provides the opportunity for language students to pair up with another student whose native language they are learning.  As the name suggests, the arrangement is reciprocal so each pair of students would practice their listening and speaking skills for approximately the same length of time.  The school introduces partners, and after that they can meet and chat informally at their own convenience.
