“Blue Book” traineeship programme

In what order should I declare the languages I know?

  • The 1st language must be one of the Commission's working languages, i.e. French, English or German (C level or mother tongue level).
  • The 2nd language must be a minimum B2 level of another official language of the EU (can also be a mother tongue).

Note: Please make sure that you declare your eligibility languages at the appropriate place in the application form (“Languages-Eligibility criteria”).

For additional languages, the order does not matter.
