"The limits of my language are the limits of my world." – Ludwig Wittgenstein

The EU: Almost 30 countries, a common economic and working space for over 500 million people from the Arctic Circle to the Mediterranean. This development calls for overcoming language barriers and building communicative bridges to other cultures.

In addition to language proficiency, our language center's goals include providing support to understand other cultures. Learning is project-oriented and mainly in small groups, helping students to not only acquire language acquisition skills, but also support personal growth.

What would languages be without a direct connection to the countries in which they are spoken? By supervising a variety of exchange programs, the center is in direct contact with different cultures on a daily basis. Intensive German courses for JKU students and employees contribute significantly to the university's internationalization efforts.

"As many languages as you speak, so many souls you have." – Czech proverb
