Piloting with students of English and International Communication at Vilnius Business College, November 29, 2017

On November 29, 2017 Vilnius Business College organized the fourth UID project piloting session with students of English and International Communication, conducted by Irena Seniut. There were 11 participants. The students piloted Intercultural Module and Country Module. They left very positive commentaries about their experience of the platform activities; the majority of them agreed that it is a modern, interactive and engaging way of studying foreign languages. They got new information about the topics in the modules and improved their knowledge and skills.

Piloting finished!

On Thursday, 30 November, the last piloting of the K2 + project took place. Since 20 November four modules have been piloted in the first and second class of our college. Three of them at C1 and one at B1 level. In a case study from the Intercultural Module the students prepared for a trip to Turkey, so they will not be astonished by different body language of native speakers in the future. From the national modules, the students chose Lithuania and its beauty and cultural traditions, which they could compare with traditions in our country. Not to get lost during their visits to foreign countries, they practiced both city and hotel orientation with the help of interactive maps.
The employees of the Town Hall and Museum in Čáslav also took part in piloting, as part of corporate English courses. They also prepared for future trips to the Turkish Riviera and Turkish traditions. Moreover they “cooked” some of the traditional Czech dishes not to be hungry on their journey. Unfortunately they didn´t have enough time to try Turkish cuisine during the lesson, but they can do this as their homework.

Our secondary school students could try Erasmus + learning platform on-line

In the week from 20th to 24th November 2017, a pilot of the educational platform http://esolams.eu/unity/, which the teachers of our school helped to create within the Erasmus + project “Unity in diversity”, was held at our school. First, the students learned how this e-learning platform looks and how it works.

They also familiarized with some modules such as City - getting oriented, Management offices, Hotel reception, Hotel business center or Country module and Intercultural module. Individual modules are at different language levels, so everyone can find a level that suits them. For example, the students tried to find places in interactive maps, find information in texts, answer questions based on listening or video, or solve different quizzes. At the end of the piloting, each group filled in a questionnaire which confirmed that the overwhelming majority of the students evaluated the platform positively and recommended it to other foreign language students.
