This resource is available only for the participants of one of the Erasmus + project. After a Language Assessment that must be completed by the participant before starting experience abroad, courses for different languages are available. In any case, those courses can be followed only by the students who have been selected by their sending institutions/organisations.
Pros and cons:
This resource provides a complete course in different languages totally free and available online. It’s only for students who are participating in an Erasmus + Project
Only selected students can have access to the online courses provided by Online Linguistic Support (OLS).
Online Linguistic Support (OLS) is a tool created to help participants of one of the Erasmus + projects. The resource doesn’t provide any tools usable in a class because it is itself an online course available only for selected Erasmus + participants.
