Effective Professional Language Learning

“In the contemporary world under the conditions of a severe competition the development of tourism is rapidly growing and creates new challenges: one of these is to acquire not only new foreign language skills, but also intercultural skills that play a particularly important role in the everyday life of those providing efficient customer service. Therefore, an idea was created to develop and design easy to use and contemporary study material that offers a possibility to acquire and practice various language skills, based on the existing language level”.

Based on the results gained during the course piloting team members of Turiba University have written an article on how to learn new languages for occupation using the created blended-learning course.

The article by Viola Ēvele and Anda Komarovska “Effective Professional Language Learning” has been published in the Scientific Journal of Turiba University “Acta Prosperitatis 10”. You can read the article on: http://www.turiba.lv/f/2019/Acta_Prosperitatis_No.10_FINAL.pdf

Workshop for students 2019-04-30

On April 30, 2019 Vakaris Šaulys from Vilnius Business College had a workshop with his students, where they used an online language learning platform created under the Unity in Diversity project. The students were from study programmes like Tourism and Events, Business Management and Marketing, Logistics Business. They found the platform very useful as the tasks and topics are directly related to their study subjects.
