Project dissemination for second-year students at Ekonomska šola Murska Sobota, Higher vocational school

On 21.3.2017 the second-year students of the programme Economist and Informatics at Ekonomska šola Murska Sobota, Higher vocational school attended the presentation of the new EU project »Language skills and intercultural issues in the hospitality industry: unity in diversity in the EU labour market«. I explained that the new project was the continuation of the previous EU project »Key Skills for Hotel Industry Staff« which finished in autumn 2016. Before presenting the new project I showed them the results of the previous project as it was easier to understand what both projects are about. I briefly mentioned the FrontDesk programs and the smartphones applications. Then I presented the Moodle e-platform for learning. I explained all the modules and study material for A2/B1 language level and showed some exercises in English and German. I also mentioned that those modules are available in 12 European languages (DE, EN, ES, FR, GR, HR, HU, IT, LV, RO, RU, SI). Then I presented the 6 modules for the higher language level B2/C1 available in English and explained the differences to A2/B1 level. I showed some exercises so that they could see the difference for themselves. I mentioned several times that the e-platform is available to anybody interested in languages and can be accessed by anyone who wants to learn or improve their language skills. Furthermore, I emphasized that access to the platform is free.  Then I showed them the new e-platform and explained how it will differ from the old one – with four new European languages (CZ, LT, SE, TR). I told them that all the study material and exercises for the A2/B1 language level will be available in the new languages as well. Furthermore, there will be a new language course for A1 level in all 16 European languages. Moreover, the B2/C1 level will be richer for case studies for all modules, intercultural and country case studies, video material and face-to-face tasks. Before we finished I showed them where and how to register on the Moodle e-platform so that they could use the study material and do the exercises.
