OLS | Online Language Support | Erasmus Plus and European Solidarity Corps

Are you a volunteer with the European Solidarity Corps programme? Are you part of any project financed with the Erasmus Plus programme? Good news is that the European Union provides language support to any participant to the Erasmus+ and ESC programmes!

OLS | Online Language Support

The Online Language Support (OLS) is designed to help Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps participants improve their knowledge of the language in which they will work, study or volunteer abroad so that they can make the most out of this experience.

As the lack of language skills remains one of the main barriers to the participation in European education, training and youth mobility opportunities, OLS makes language support accessible in a flexible and easy way. It also contributes to a specific objective of the Erasmus+ programme, which is to promote language learning and linguistic diversity.

By taking the OLS language assessment when going abroad, Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps participants are able to determine their proficiency in the language they will use to study, work or volunteer and get access to a personalised language learning pathway. The results of the language assessment do not prevent participants from taking part in Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps programmes.

Who Can Access OLS

The OLS is currently available for participants from the following Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps fields

  • higher education
  • European Solidarity Corps
  • Vocational Education and Training (VET)
  • adult learning (including staff from all fields of Education and Training and Youth)
  • schools
  • youth

OLS will be available for all European Union languages: Bulgarian, Czech, Danish, German, Greek, English, Estonian, Spanish, Finnish, French, Irish Gaelic, Croatian, Hungarian, Italian, Lithuanian, Latvian, Maltese, Dutch, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Slovak, Slovenian and Swedish.

Participants who wish to improve their language proficiency have the opportunity to follow online language courses before and during their time abroad.

How To Participate

If you have already been selected to go abroad with the Erasmus+ or European Solidarity Corps programmes, your institution or organisation will send you a login and a password to access OLS.

For further details, please contact your sending institution or coordinating organisation, or National Agency, or access the OLS platform.
