Erasmus+ Online Linguistic Support (OLS) is the new online tool for learning languages on-the-go.
The OLS offers participants in Erasmus+ long-term mobility activities (Key Action 1) the opportunity to assess 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 competence.
Erasmus+ participants can benefit from OLS in different ways. Before they set off, they can assess their language level online.
Once this has been done, Erasmus+ participants can access online materials, courses and language learning forums so that they can improve their language level. After their Erasmus+ experience, participants have the opportunity to assess the progress they made.
OLS is currently available in German, English, Spanish, French, Italian and Dutch. By 2020, Erasmus+ aims to have language learning online up-and-running for all official EU languages.
