How to sign up for language learning or English language support

To get started with language learning at BU go to the BU languages community on myBU.

Register your interest by clicking on the registration information button at the top right of the screen and signing up for the language and level you require. This way we know how many students and staff are interested in language learning and are in a better position to help you. Once you have registered, we will invite you to an induction or arrange a 1-1 meeting where we can explain in more detail how everything works and give you some tips and advice towards successful language learning. Inductions take place several times per week in the first few weeks of both the autumn and spring terms. Timetables and sign-up sheets for these inductions are also available on the Information and Registration page of the Languages@BU community. At other times of the year you can make 1-1 appointments with Paul Barnes, the Language Adviser.
