eLOCAL (electronically Learning Other Cultures and Languages) Language Courses

elocal logoeLOCAL  is a European project for incoming and outgoing students on international exchange programmes (Erasmus, Campus World, etc.).

It offers online language courses (free of charge) for beginners , going up to A1 level so as to allow students to deal with the basic necessities of everyday life in the host country, even if another language will be used for their university studies.

The courses also introduce some cultural aspects of the country.

Six languages are available:

Finnish , Italian , Dutch ,

Polish , Portuguese , Hungarian .



Outgoing Italian students can access the courses before departure using the credentials for their “personal page” of the UNIVPM website.



Incoming foreign students can follow the Italian language course (as support for the timetabled classroom sessions) using the credentials (registration number and password) which they will be given on their arrival in Italy.


If the students come from a university which is already part of the eduGAIN network they will be able to access the courses before arriving in Italy using the credentials for their home university.
