Maybe you have already heard about the Online Linguistic Support for Erasmus+ participants, or maybe not. Today we want to share with you this amazing opportunity and to explain you how you can enjoy it as a mobility participant.
As known, ERASMUS+ is aimed at boosting skills and employability, as well as modernising Education, Training and Youth work, and contributing to promoting cooperation, diversity and multilingu
alism. As languages are the heart of mutual understanding and comprehension, it is essential to promote language learning among Erasmus+ mobility participants. For that reason it has been implemented the Online Linguistic Support (OLS).
The OLS supports language learning by offering to participants in Erasmus+ long-term mobility activities (Key Action 1) the opportunity to assess and improve their skills in the foreign language(s) they will use to study, work or volunteer abroad. In addition, selected participants may follow an online language course to improve their competences. (more…)
Many of those who have participated in the Europe’s most exciting mobility project would say:
‘Once Erasmus, always Erasmus’.
Even if the motto could seem far from an affirmation of your career skills, analyzing it on a deeper level, actually your Erasmus can be a formative experience that sets you on a path of growth. The months that you spend abroad as an Erasmus student or trainee can be very constructive and benefit you on a more long-term basis. Statistics demonstrate that taking part in the Erasmus program improves your cultural awareness, adaptability and language skills, transversal traits highly appreciated by employers.
