Current facets (Pre-Master)

The Language & Training Centre (LTC), part of Erasmus University Rotterdam, stands for effective learning and communicating in a business environment and in different languages. So if your company operates in the international market or if you and your team have regular contact with customers in a foreign language, we can offer you a suitable training course. The LTC will help you get there!

We offer:

  • Language assessment English
  • Language assessment Dutch
  • Language courses
  • Communication skills training courses

For both our assessments and courses, we work with 50 qualified and experienced teachers and trainers. The level indicator we work with is a European standard: the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR).

Assessments

If you want to know if your (future) employee masters the English or Dutch language well enough to be able to function properly, a language assessment could be a solution. Such an assessment
reveals whether someone has a command of the relative language at the required level. A standard language assessment English or Dutch for € 105,- is offered.

In addition, on request it is possible to choose between separate parts of the test and adapt an assessment to the work environment and function of your (future) employee(s).
Your assessment could consist of one or more key components:
