Meeting Description: The languages of Language Centres towards European and international challenges: education and employment

Drawing on the results of surveys and research projects (ELAN, 2007; PIMLICO, 2010), in the last decade the European Commission has stressed the relevance of knowing and using a foreign language in the working context (e.g. companies, public institutions, service industry). In particular, proficiency in a foreign language represents a considerable advantage in sales and marketing and provides a significant aid in intra and extra-company communication at all levels. In this perspective, the role of university language centres as privileged loci for advanced language education is crucial in complying with European requirements on languages and employment, promoting work-oriented language training within the framework of key competences for lifelong learning (EU 2020)
