Language training

Linguapolis: the language institute of the University of Antwerp

Linguapolis organises and offers:

1. Academic English and Academic Dutch

2. General language courses

Altissia: online language courses

This academic year, UAntwerp will be offering Altissia’s online language courses again.
You can study 7 languages: English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and Dutch. You can access all languages, and all levels are available – from beginner to advanced!
Each module consists of many different activities, and the modules don’t just focus on academic language, but on the language used in everyday situations. By watching films and animated videos, you can improve your language skills in an interactive way.
Before you start, you can take a placement test.
