On-line courses


The course covers the intermediate level of English. It includes different types of activities that participants should take part in, including:

  • reading texts, audio files and videos on a wide range of trade union related topics;
  • quizzes which test participant’s understanding of key vocabulary and grammar;
  • forums where participants can share opinions and experiences with other learners;
  • speaking and writing assignments to which participants receive personal feedback from the course tutor.

The course will involve about 36 hours of work.


A maximum of 150 participants can be accepted. The final confirmation of the participants will be done by ETUI bearing in mind the requirements for the target group.

Selection of participants follows the criteria “first come, first served”.

Once the 150 available places are filled, registrations will be closed. Given the high numbers of requests, this can happen before the deadline.
