A new programme to support language learning has been announced last week. It’s called “Erasmus for All” and you find find out more here (press release) and here (FAQs). Erasmus for All would bring together all seven current EU and international schemes for education, training, youth and sport.
From the FAQs: “Erasmus for All is the new programme proposed by the European Commission for education, training, youth and sport. It would start in 2014 and would significantly increase the funds allocated for the development of knowledge and skills. Erasmus for All is based on the premise that investing in education and training is the key to unlocking people’s potential, regardless of their age or background. It helps them to increase their personal development, gain new skills and boost their job prospects.”
Europe Direct Leeds supports language learners in its own way, by offering an informal language exchange. To find out more and to sign up click here.
