How does the Language Programme Contribute to Social Inclusion?

European societies are facing rapid change due to globalisation. As a result, day-to-day experiences of many Europeans are becoming more international and, consequently, more multilingual.Therefore, everyone should have access to appropriate language training so that there is no undue linguistic obstacle to living, working or communicating in the European Union. Mastering language skills can increase employability as well as enabling citizens to express themselves and to participate actively in society. The LLP programmes also includes a key transversal activity, “Languages” that is devoted to the teaching and learning of languages. It contains a wealth of opportunities for language project and brings inspiration to transnational cooperation.
