Benefits of the course

"It‘s a whole different experience sending an email in English to a business partner abroad – from just writing a letter at home that only the teacher will ever see." (Peter Hiller)

"The project helped me in several ways: working in a team over a longer period, distributing tasks just like in a “real” company, taking responsibility - and also the consequences, if team members haven‘t done their “homework”." (Sonja Kemmler)

"PELLIC is great!"

"Hi, I am glad to read that you also liked PELLIC"

"I also find the information about EUROLTA and PELLIC quite interesting and useful. I even tried the demo course on the Pellic website and I found it very useful as I currently teach business English for students in Mangerial Administration and Secretarial Work. I will check this website on a regular basis and I'm also thinking about joining the on-line course in the near future."

"I agree with you about the PELLIC project - it looks most attractive (what I could see browsing the DEMO). I bet both teachers and learners find it useful and relevant to their needs. Congratulations to the authors - the partners that you know personally."

"Searching for information I discovered a very interesting project – PELLIC which made me think of starting to develop an online course for practicing business communication skills in French in the future. I even tried the demo course."
