Learning Languages & Skills at the EUI: Introduction to the Language Centre September 2019

We will describe the various ways the Centre supports you, your research and your general desire for learning throughout your years here at the EUI. Teachers of all the main languages taught at the EUI (English, Italian, French, German, and Spanish) will also speak briefly.

Placement tests will be held straight afterwards.

September Language & Skills Courses: 2-27 September 2019

In September the EUI Language Centre offers first-year researchers and fellows:

  1. semi-intensive pre-sessional English academic skills courses 
  2. introductory courses in Italian language and culture

1st year researchers who have been exempted from English and/or Italian courses can also attend the September courses in French, German, and Spanish if compatible with their academic program.

Beginners’ courses in French, German, and Spanish start in October. 


Placement Tests for Language Courses

  • ENGLISH: First-year researchers who haven’t already done an EUI placement test in English must take it now.
  • ITALIAN: All who haven’t been assigned to an Italian course yet need to take the placement test to find the appropriate level (except beginners).
  • FRENCH, GERMAN, SPANISH: If you wish to follow a French, German or Spanish language course you must take an EUI placement test. Only absolute beginners don’t have to sit a placement test.

When can I take a placement test? 

EUI placement tests are held on Friday 30 August 2019.

Come to the Language Centre Presentation in the Theatre, Badia Fiesolana at 13:30. Straight after the presentation, the teachers will be waiting to run the placement tests and answer any further questions you might have.
