Qualifikationsziele des Moduls:
Foreign language education is an integral component of all programs of study at the European University Viadrina; this is a result of the Viadrina’s international orientation. The goal of our language education is to prepare students for studying abroad and working in international contexts; however, this is not achieved solely by presenting language skills and facts about a county’s geography, history and important institutions. As members of the Viadrina community, students already live and learn in an intercultural environment; the Language Centre is a key contributor to the University's intercultural atmosphere. As a central academic institution of the University, the European University Viadrina’s Language Centre is responsible for planning and implementing foreign language training to complement all programs of study.

Both our language training programs and certificates exist in accordance with the Council of Europe’s Framework of Reference for language proficiency.

Students additionally have access to the information superhighway - that is, to e-mail and the internet.
