A good knowledge of the language of the host country (usually English) or the language of instruction in the host country (English, French, Spanish, Italian) is required. The language skills must be proven with the application by a language certificate. The language certificates can be acquired through a Foreign Languages for Economists course conform to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. If you have not acquired a language certificate, you can take a language test, e.g. at the Eloquia language school in Frankfurt, which shows the language level.
Some partner universities require proof of a sufficient TOEFL (Test of English as a foreign language) or IELTS score. Early and thorough preparation for the tests and timely registration with the relevant test centres is strongly recommended.
