We offer:

  • An integrated course structure which complies with the Common European Framework for Languages (CEFL).
  • Specific Purpose language courses created in close cooperation with the faculties to meet their needs and the needs of their students.
  • Practical, skills-based courses in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Italian, Japanese, Modern Greek (new in the 2015/16 winter semester), Dutch, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Swedish, Spanish and Turkish.
