The Language Centre of the PLUS
The Language Centre was founded in 1999 as a service centre of the Paris-Lodron-University of Salzburg. The main focus of the Language Centre is the promotion of plurilingualism. Since 2002/03, language courses have been offered at the Language Centre for students and staff of the PLUS and the Mozarteum as well as for external language enthusiasts. Since then our course programme has been continuously developed. Quality and innovation in language teaching are also achieved through the commitment of our academic staff to numerous research activities, including projects and the development of new concepts concepts for foreign and second language teaching.
More than 50 lecturers teach the courses at the Language Centre and the VPLUS, the course for the preparation of supplementary exams.
