Where to find the money for English language learning?
Knowledge of English is a great asset in the domestic and foreign job market. Unfortunately, language courses are expensive and not everyone has enough money to afford one. Where to get the money for this investment in personal development?
Payment in instalments
Some language schools offer their students the opportunity to pay for an English course in installments. This is a great solution for people who have a regular income and are able to set aside a certain amount of it to pay for the installments. Payment by instalments tends to be more expensive than a single payment for the whole course up front, but if you are short of cash it is a good way to finance English language learning. Many language schools offer the option of paying on a monthly basis, which is particularly beneficial for working people who receive a monthly salary, or students who receive monthly scholarships.
Subsidising English language learning
The need for development and English language skills is recognised by authorities at both national and local level. Many courses are subsidized by public funds, especially for people with low professional skills. Some of them are addressed to unemployed people, others on the contrary – only for those who work full time or run their own business. The solution is also English subsidized from the EU, which is usually conducted from scratch so that the course can benefit even people without knowledge of the language. The funding for the EU-funded English courses comes from European funds, but the course providers, often municipalities, are the dispatchers. Participants can count on subsidies of up to 80%, although there are some courses that are fully financed by European funds. It is therefore worth finding out whether in our region this type of English courses are not organized, and if they are, what conditions must be met to be able to benefit from funding.
