Introduction

YOUR PROOF OF FOREIGNLANGUAGE COMPETENCY

More than ever proof of language competency is required, in particular in a professional and academic context. Language certificates are official documents proving your language competency, as they assess your foreign language ability and show your employer or the academic institution that you possess a certain level of foreign language competency. The intention alone, of wanting to finish off a language course with a certificate, can motivate your learning.

ELOQUIA Frankfurt teaches and works according to the Common European Framework for languages (GER). This level system, which was developed by the European Council, puts a valid framework on all European languages and has been accepted and recommended by numerous organisations and institutes (government offices, colleges, universities) in Germany and abroad. The main goal is to achieve transparency and comparability of the different diplomas and certificates. With help from the GER, language competencies are put on the same scale and are therefore comparable cross country.
