The online Linguistic Support Platform, OLS (Platforma de Sprijin Lingvistic Online) offers online courses in Bulgarian, Czech, Danish, German, Estonian, Greek, English, Spanish, French, Croatian, Italian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Portuguese, Romanian, Slovak, Slovenian, Finnish and Swedish to higher education students, VET learners and young volunteers participating in the Erasmus + program. The European Commission has decided to extend this service to the benefit of approximately 100,000 refugees over a three-year period, with voluntary and free participation.
OLS language courses include a variety of self-learning modules for different linguistic domains, as well as interactive learning activities in real-time (online courses with unlimited access for all users, meditation sessions and forums).
The objective of this initiative is to support the efforts of EU Member States to integrate refugees into education and training systems in Europe and to ensure the development of their competences. OLS needs to help refugees overcome the language barrier in order to continue their studies at higher education institutions in Europe and to increase their chances of integration into the European labor market.
This initiative is part of a broader policy agenda to support refugees through the Erasmus + program and European higher education.
