The Online Linguistic Support (OLS) supports language learning for Erasmus+ mobility participants. The OLS offers participants in Erasmus+ long-term mobility activities (Key Action 1) the opportunity to assess their skills in the foreign language(s) they will use to study, work or volunteer abroad. In addition, selected participants may follow an online language course to improve their competence. (https://erasmusplusols.eu/)
The linguistic support is only available for the activity types listed in below table and only if it is a long-term activity.
All support material concerning the use of OLS can be found on Online Lingusitic Support.

It is necessary to indicate an associated person as OLS contact in the application form. The contact indicated as the Online Linguistic Support contact receives a notification by email when licences for language assessments and language courses are available in the Online Linguistic Support (OLS) system, and is responsible for sending invitations to mobility participants to take the language assessment and start the language course, if awarded. The Online Linguistic Support contact person is also responsible for monitoring the usage of licences and can create additional Online Linguistic Support users (aliases) with the same access rights if needed.
To add an OLS contact in the Web Form see: Web Forms Linguistic Support (KA102, KA116) & Web Forms: Add associated persons of organisations.
