Piloting at Turiba University, Piloting 28.03.2018

Piloting of A1 modules for second language learning continues. On 28 March, 2018 French and German language lecturer Liga Klavina had a workshop with the first year Tourism and Hospitality Management programme students studying French. This is their second semester of French studies. When finishing the second semester, it is planned that students will attain A1 French language level.

There were six students in the group and after the demonstration of the tasks, the students could choose any A1 French module according to their wishes and do the tasks. They selected the following A1 course modules “Welcome” (one student), “Hotel” (two students), “Restaurant” (two students), “Professional skills” (one student).

The students who did the modules “Restaurant” and “Professional skills” all highly evaluated the learning platform and the course. The student doing the module “Welcome” has provided a high evaluation in some questions, but the student did not indicate having developed her listening skills, grammar knowledge and vocabulary, which might be explained with the fact that the student had prior knowledge in French and her language level was rather A2 than A1. The students doing the course “Hotel” highly evaluated it, but one of them did not enjoy the games. Thus, the students’ evaluation is very useful for us in improving the course.

 

Detailed results of the feedback forms will be analysed in the course piloting report at the end of the semester.

Piloting at Turiba University -Piloting 21.03.2018-

On 21 March, 2018, a group of international students of Turiba University piloted the Spanish course, A1 level. These students started learning Spanish with their Spanish lecturer Vicente Navas Messa just a year ago, so this is a good opportunity for them to see what they have learnt and to strengthen their language skills. The students told that doing online course was a ‘helpful and creative way of learning the language’. They admitted that it was interesting and they have got useful information. Moreover, one of the students wrote: ‘In general, all the tasks in the module provided were first of all useful, secondly – interesting. And last but not the least, the tasks were very clear’, which they really liked. They were certain that the tasks were appropriate to their language level, especially grammar tasks that developed their grammar habits and videos developed their listening skills. And it was a fun as well to see their language teacher in the video episodes.

Detailed results of the feedback forms will be analysed in the course piloting report at the end of the semester.

Piloting at Turiba University -Piloting 21.03.2018

Turiba University continues piloting the Spanish language modules created for developing learners’ A1 language competence. A group of local students (10 students), under the guidance of their Spanish lecturer Vicente Navas Mesa, had a workshop piloting the modules according to their choice, as this workshop was specifically connected with online tasks in order to watch the videos and listen to the audios and do comprehension tasks thus strengthening their language skills developed in face-to-face studies. The students piloted the modules “Welcome”, “Hotel” and “Restaurant” and two students also did the module “Professional skills”.

We received only positive feedback. In the comments the students wrote that they ‘liked the site, it is very useful and interesting’, they ‘enjoyed work with this platform’. They especially liked the warm-up tasks: ‘they were the most interesting and useful ones in order to learn new vocabulary’.

Detailed results of the feedback forms will be analysed in the course piloting report at the end of the semester.
