Language offers for adults

Language is one of the most essential components of our everyday lives. It contributes to our active participation in our  social lives and enables us to fulfill our everyday requirements as well as building relationships through learning each other’s language. At the CIC we offer language courses at all levels and our language swap is an informal way to practise a foreign language. At our Italian and Spanish weekly “language workshops” at our Villach office you are invited to practise those languages at any level. But that’s not all: we also organise fun get-togethers hosted by native speakers especially for children.
