Piloting of the Learning Program has started (Piloting of the RO material)

On March 3, 2016, Sapientia University team has started course piloting of the Romanian study material with their students.   

The first students who piloted the course were the first year tourism management students studying Romanian language – Communication skills in Romanian. The work was done with a small group of four students. First students were introduced with the developed Romanian study materials within the project „Key Skills for European Union Hotel Staff”, so that they could try out solving one set of exercises.

In order to learn how the platform functions, students did A2/B1 module “Hotel Reception/Ski and Village” which was a good practice for them and enabled the students to revise the vocabulary acquired during their regular studies.   

The first impressions were positive. Students found the platform useful and interesting and they admitted that they had learnt many new things and enjoyed doing so. The students pointed out that the module developed for A2/B1 level – Hotel Reception - will help them to independently develop their reading and listening skills in Romanian language.

The course piloting will continue till the end of semester. Thus, these first year students will have the opportunity to try out all the modules in Romanian language. As a teacher, I will use the modules as a supplementary material for my Romanian language course to enhance students’ reading, listening and speaking skills.   

After piloting there will be a survey for students in order to receive a feedback on the Learning platform and study materials, discover mistakes and get recommendations for improvement.

Sapientia University does piloting for other languages as well, among which for English and Hungarian.

In total, there were 48 students and many of them were very excited to be among the first students to learn  language for the first time using this very interactive learning tool.

The first impressions are very positive and they were very interested in many languages. Students enjoyed the platform and evaluated the learning process as interesting, useful and they admitted that they had learnt many new things since Italian, French, German and Spanish they have been learning for several years.
