Language Learning Materials

NCAD’s Language collection was instigated in order to give students the opportunity to build upon the language skills they had already acquired at secondary school, as well as to master new languages. The service is particularly aimed at those who plan to participate in student exchange schemes or to spend time abroad for cultural or career purposes.
The greatest variety of material is available in French, German, Spanish, Italian, Irish and English as a foreign language. However, there are also course materials in other languages including Japanese, Portuguese, Arabic, Chinese, Greek, Turkish, Hindi, Russian, Dutch, Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish, Polish and Slovene.
