Piloting of A1 language course at Ekonomska šola Murska Sobota, Višja strokovna šola

From March to May 2018 the piloting of A1 language course on the Moodle e-learning platform took place. The participants were full-time and part-time students of the higher vocational college Murska Sobota as well as representatives of the industry. Before the participants started with the testing of the A1 material, they were shown the topics, the types of tasks and the grading system. They were also informed about the purpose of the piloting. Together we solved some of the tasks in different languages so that they could see how the platform works and then try on their own. The majority were solving tasks in English, German and Croatian. Students from the bilingual region solved the tasks in Hungarian and Slovenian. Some of the students tried the material in Czech and Spanish. In addition, one or two students tried Russian and Swedish.

The students' impressions and opinions were very positive as all expressed that the platform was interesting and quite useful. Especially part-time students and representatives of the industry were satisfied with the platform because it allows them to check and improve their knowledge with the feedback of the grading system. Everyone agreed that it is an interesting and useful way to learn a new language. Students and representatives of the industry filled in a questionnaire that will provide additional information and suggestions for improving the e-learning platform. It will also help to correct mistakes or fix technical problems.

Turiba University finishes course piloting with adult learners’ workshop

On May 29, 2018 the last workshop of A1 course piloting was held at Turiba University. This was a workshop for adult learners.

The course piloting of A1 modules has been in progress since February at Turiba University. During that period 53 VET students piloted French, German, Spanish and English A1 level courses.

Apart from the students, a group of adult learners have been learning A1 English course to update their language skills necessary for work at supportive functions of the University (financial sector, technical staff, the staff of the library and publishing house, secretaries, security, etc.). They all benefited from increasing their English language competence that is essential in an international university on daily basis when contacting our international students from all over the world. They highly appreciated that opportunity and were glad that the language learning materials created will be available for them for self-study after the end of the project and they will be able to proceed to A2/B1 level and possibly to B2 level as well.
