Mornington Peninsula Language & Culture Studies

Italian | French | Spanish | German | Dutch | Greek | Japanese | Chinese | Esl | Portuguese | Thai 


MPLCS specialises in teaching foreign languages and culture in the Mornington Peninsula. It is based upon the belief that Peninsula residents and visitors should have the chance to learn and experience traditions of other countries, particularly since many residents have a close connection with other cultures from one or two generations back.

We believe that quality is more important than quantity, therefore all foreign language courses are designed for small groups of students. It provides Italian, French, German, Spanish, Greek, Dutch, Japanese, Chinese and ESL language and culture lessons to adults, children and teenagers. Courses are designed for students at all levels: beginner, intermediate, advanced and conversational.


Our method is to provide the tools to talk in a foreign language in the first hour of  lesson. Teachers will explain the 'language rules' in a very easy and enjoyable way and a student can start talking immediately using the language that he/she is studying.


Our students will also see the cultural faces of the country, the language of which they are studying. During classes it is possible to talk in English about geography, history, art, literature, traditions, culinary aspects, fashion, Architecture etc., and all ideas are welcome.


We organise local and overseas trips. It welcomes people that are willing to know the real country and that are ready to have language and culture lessons every day.



Our courses run all year, daytime, evenings weekdays & weekends.  To enrol please click the enrolment link below and ensure you read and understand the T&C's before enrolling.  For further information please visit our contact page.

"Having been a pupil of Barbara's for over 2 years I had high expectations for the trip, & these expectations were not only met but exceeded. We definitely laughed, ate and drank our way across France. Each day had extras included and Barbara's attention to detail made all the difference. I will definitely be booking another tour with MPLCS in future."
