Hello and welcome to Shropshire Languages Society -  a non-profit chariable organisation which supports language learning from an academic, professional and social perspective.  We provide language learning for children, elderly and less fortunate as well as other adult learners.  We offer work experience opportunities for young people and foreign people in the UK and abroad. We also provide for British Sign Language (BSL) and Deaf Awareness and try to offer work experience opportunities.


Shropshire Languages Society was established in around 1962 by Harry and Doris Bristow, married couple, Richard Bristow, son and William Bell, all from a grammar school language teaching background. They established the Society to allow students and adults to seek advice and support on their language studies, and to provide language learning and advice for those who may, otherwise, be unable to access language learning opportunities. We continue to grow and have always kept up well with the ever changing educational and financial climates. We have experienced the ‘setback’ felt by many organisations in recent years due to cutbacks during the recession. Nevertheless we are able to provide an excellent service on low funding owing to the commitment and knowledge of our team and resources available.  


Joint founder, Richard Bristow died in 2011 and the Society continues to run now with Mr James Evans actively involved in its running and development as the Society’s Benefactor alongside the Board of Trustees.  We hold the status of a registered charity.
