Language Centre Develop yourself

Erasmus+ staff exchange

We regularly host an Erasmus+ staff exchange week, where staff members from other language centres visit us for a week to observe our teaching and get to know the Language Centre. The week included visits to language and academic writing classes, extensive dialogues with counterparts (such as the Translation and Correction Service or a section head), a session on the MOOC and online language learning, another on Intercultural Competence, and strategic exchange about management and marketing.

Our guests from 2022 found the week “intensive, rewarding, interesting, inspiring and exhausting!”

We will be hosting an Erasmus+ staff exchange week again from Monday 25-29 September 2023. If you are interested, please contact us via We are looking forward to meeting you in Groningen.
