Dissemination in Nida, June 23-24, 2018

On June 23-24, 2018 Deimantė Vilčinskaitė from Vilnius Business College disseminated Unity in Diversity project in Nida Culture and Information Centre, Nida, Lithuania. There was an event “Let’s get acquainted”, where people from various countries had an informal discussion, during which local people communicated with student guests from countries like Nigeria, Pakistan, Ghana and Azerbaijan. They discussed national celebrations and traditions, sang Lithuanian songs. Foreign students were very happy about the warm welcome, praised the nature of the Curonian Spit and Lithuanian St. John’s day.

During all these activities UID project was introduced and demonstrated to the students. They were glad to hear that such online tools are being created and said that it should attract the younger IT-minded generation to learning languages in a new and engaging way.

Project dissemination for teachers of Srednja šola za gostinstvo in turizem Radenci

On 21 June 2018 I had the presentation and dissemination of the European project »Language skills and intercultural issues in the hospitality industry: unity in diversity in the EU labour market« at Srednja šola za gostinstvo in turizem Radenci, the secondary school for hospitality and tourism. I briefly informed the teachers about the project and project partners and then continued with the presentation of the Moodle e-learning platform. I started with the language course A2/B1, available 16 European languages and showed them tasks in English and German. Foreign language teachers and Slovenian teachers especially liked the interactive maps as they are very useful for developing speaking skills. Then I presented the B2/C1 language course and explained the idea of this higher level course. I also showed some material and tasks so that they could see the difference to A2/B1. I finished with the language course for A1, also available in 16 European languages. I emphasized that all modules additionally offer audio and/or video material which contributes to the development of listening and speaking skills. Moreover, I highlighted that the e-learning platform will be accessible without any payment to anyone who is interested in learning a new language, checking their foreign language skills or improving them. Furthermore, I stressed that the learning platform is added value for teachers as it could be used in class for checking vocabulary or topics or introducing new topics. Additionally, it is an advantage for students as they can do tasks on their own and they get feedback from the system that corrects the task. It is useful for teachers, students, employees in the tourism sector and the broader public. Before I finished I showed them how to register on the platform so that they can use it in the autumn when it becomes available to the public. They were also interested in a workshop in the autumn before school starts.
