Welcome to the Language Centre


The Language Centre of the Technical University of Crete supports students enrolled in English and German language courses as well as those wishing general improvement of their foreign language skills.

Educational resources focus on the language skills needed for future academic or professional life.

English and German language teaching concentrates on and encompasses:


  • grammar, oral and written communication skills, terminology, engineering glossaries
  • an asynchronous e-learning platform (Moodle) comprised of taped lectures, exercises, quizzes for summative assessment, and suggestions for further study 
  • self-access worksheets (grammar, reading, terminology, and academic topics)
  • laboratories
  • films and documentaries


Our aim is to enable students to increase awareness of their learning process and encourage them to self-assess and independently select strategies for English or German language acquisition, the full support of the Language Centre staff notwithstanding.
