TASTE OF LANGUAGES

ONLINE ACTIVITY

 

In view of the celebration of the European Day of Languages, the European Commission and the Language Centre of the University of Cyprus give you the opportunity to get a taste of the languages offered by the University of Cyprus to its undergraduate students. 

The experienced teachers of the Language Centre, the School of Greek Language and the Confucius Institute will be available online to help you get a taste of the language you are interested in and, why not, learn in the future. 

You can register for a specific language in a specific 15-minute session based on the schedule. 

 

The programme includes ten (10) languages: English, French, German, Greek, Spanish, Italian, Chinese, Russian, Turkish and Cypriot sign language. 

 

The duration of each session is 15 minutes, with up to 10 participants participating in each session. You will have the opportunity to hear how your chosen language sounds and learn a few things about the culture of the country it represents. 

We would like to inform you that all the sessions will be filmed for the purpose of promoting the event and keeping an activity record.
