The Project

The COMBI project “Communication competences for migrants and disadvantaged background learners in bilingual work environments” is to develop innovative and inclusive/systemic practices and methods focused on acquiring communication competences in the languages required in the workplace. It takes into consideration the multilingual reality of European regions.


The aim of this method is not to acquire full competences in two or more languages, but to make sure that the regional language is taken into consideration as far as it fulfils language requirements in the workplace thanks to innovative teaching methods.
