Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

Some questions that are coming up often and might interest you.

What are the language requirements for the participants?

Participants must have a very good knowledge of at least one of the three official project languages (German, English & French) (min. level C1 according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages - CEFR) and a basic knowledge of another project language (min. level A2/B1). A language certificate is not required.

I would like to get an impression of the last edition (PEL 2022).

The final event of the PEL 2022 took place in the hemicycle of the European Parliament in Strasbourg. Pictures are available here: . Further information is available here: .

How will the implementation of the project be guaranteed in view of the Covid-19 situation?

We hope and expect to be able to welcome our participants on site in Strasbourg in May 2023 as we did last year. Let’s promote Europe (LPE) is also taking all the necessary steps to propose a hybrid or online edition if necessary. That is why the PEL 2023 will take place under all circumstances.

I still have questions.
