The new free linguistic support service for participants in Erasmus+ long-term mobility (at least two months abroad) is available online as from 1 October, 2014.
In 2014, the service will benefit all higher education students going on mobility and young volunteers undertaking European Voluntary Service (EVS). As from 2015, it will be extended to Vocational Education Training (VET) learners.
For now the online linguistic support is available in the following six languages:
These are the languages of instruction or work for about 90% of all students, trainees, youth volunteers and others that study or train abroad. In the future, the Online Linguistic Support will be extended to all the EU official languages.
Participants in Erasmus+ mobility have to assess their language competences before and after their stay abroad.
In addition, participants will have the opportunity to take online language courses for free during their stay in the host country to improve their competences.
