    Hey, I have an offer for History at Cambridge, and I was wondering if there are any chances to get free language tuition/night classes when you're a member of the university. Is there?

    Thanks!

    Check out the Cambridge University Language Centre. My daughter is a current AMES student and it's my understanding that there a number of language learning options.

    The Language Centre is a great resource for learning languages - they run courses that have weekly classes in the first two terms, and you get a certificate of completion at the end. You'd have to discuss with your college/department about funding (I think my college was willing to cover half), and you have to get permission from both your tutor and Director of Studies before you can enrol (they can be pretty fussy about how much workload it will generate, I know mine were!), but the possibility is definitely there, and it's a great thing to do while here.

    I'm also an offer holder and am interested in learning Italian. What is the general cost of the language courses and how much work can I expect to it to generate? I was only intending to do it informally

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
