Yes, there is. It is, for example, the OLS platform (Online Linguistic Support), which is free of charge. It was designed for Erasmus+ projects participants. With OLS, you can test your current language level - your results do not affect your participation in the Erasmus + program. The tool is flexible, you can work at your own pace, as well as adjust the learning path to your own needs. OLS support is available in 24 languages. It is an excellent offer for students, learners in vocational education and training (VET) and/or volunteers.
