Dissemination of the project at TUSDU-27.10.2016

On 27th October 2016  our school visited the students of Srednja šola za gostinstvo in turizem Celje within the Erasmus + program students mobility. Students will spend a month in Dubrovnik, where they do their internship in reputable Dubrovnik hotels, gain experience, learn about the culture and customs of Dubrovnik. Since our school is the host organization, this is an opportunity to show its hospitality, arts and skills. The project coordinator Hilarija Lozančić Benic presented the Slovenian students and their headmaster Iztok Leskovar their project in our city, adding that TUSDU has had a collaboration with SSTG Celje since 2012 as part of the Leonardo da Vinci program, eCuisine. The guests presented the city of Celje and its sights in the Croatian language. The presentation was prepared by Spela Jeger followed by a presentation of the city of Celje and the surrounding area in the Croatian language that prepared Nik Kajtna. More words about a new project that TUSDU has been granted -Unity in Diversity was presented by  Hilarija Lozančić Benić. Students were introduced with project aims and outcomes.  This was an opportunity to present the work of the platform for learning foreign languages within our previous project KeySkills4EUHotelStaff. The students had a short presentation on the work of four applications and were invited to try it out. Finally, they enjoyed the delicacies that our students prepared with their mentors, and after that, our students exchanged contacts and expressed a desire to visit Slovenia and Celje in the same way.

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

On 25.10.2016 the first-year students of the programme Ekonomist 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 told the students that the new project was the continuation of the previous EU project Key Skills for Hotel Industry Staff which was finished in autumn 2016.

Before explaining the new project, I presented the results of the old project, as it was easier to understand what both projects are about. I showed them the Front Desk programs and the applications, which were created for smartphones and explained them how they worked. Then I presented the Moodle e-platform for learning. I showed them all the modules and study material for A2/B1 language level and we did some exercises in English, Slovenian 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) several times.

Then I presented the 6 modules for the higher language level B2/C1 available in English and explained the differences to A2/B1 level. We did 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. 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.
