Piloting in Turiba-23.11.2017 *

On 23 November, 2017 Vicente Navas Mesa, a lecturer of Spanish from Turiba University, Latvia, piloted the Spanish language course with the first year Tourism management students, a group of international students studying Spanish for the first semester. Six students were present and they did the module “Restaurant Kitchen”. Although the students were of A1 level only, they were able to do some tasks and found them “clear, easy to understand and really useful” and they also liked “an interface of this quiz.”

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

Piloting in Turiba-23.11.2017

On 23 November, 2017 Vicente Navas Mesa, a lecturer of Spanish from Turiba University, Latvia, piloted the Spanish language course with the first year Tourism management students, a group of international students studying Spanish for the second semester. Seven students were present and they did the module “Restaurant”. Although the students had studied Spanish only for two semesters, they liked the platform and they found it a different way of learning. They evaluated the tasks as interactive, creative, interesting, but half of a group also admitted that they needed a lot of time to do the tasks. One of the students wrote: “It was good but a little bit hard to use.”

This is evident that for A2/B1 level more prior knowledge and language skills are needed.

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

Piloting with Programming and Internet Technologies students at Vilnius Business College, November 21, 2017

On November 21, 2017 Vilnius Business College organized a second UID project piloting session with IT students. The participants were Programming and Internet Technologies students as well as Media and Computer Games students of the second year of studies. There were 7 participants. The students piloted a freely chosen module from A2/B1 and a module from B2/C1. Students were introduced into the possibilities the e-platform offers and tried it out at their own pace. The questionnaires revealed that they found the platform interesting as a change for traditional learning with a teacher. They presented their ideas and opinions about the platform tasks and their general impression suggests this tool should enrich the study process of foreign languages in the hospitality industry.
