Language Training

CERN has 2 official languages (English and French), and it is important that people who work at CERN have sufficient knowledge of both (for the job at CERN but also for integration in the local area). The language training programme supports the acquisition of these language competencies, by providing suitable learning solutions.

What the team does

Learning and Development organises language courses in collaboration with an external provider.

Type of training

Training courses aim to increase a person’s ability to communicate in the official CERN languages (French and English).
- Regular programme of collective courses, at CERN
- Tailor-made courses for individuals or small groups, at CERN
