Workshop for adult learners at Turiba University

On 15 February 2017 a workshop was held for adult learners at Turiba University. The learners were Turiba staff members from various supporting departments such as Finance Department, Quality Department, Administrative Department, etc., who are not involved in teaching any subjects to students. Their language needs concern addressing clients in Latvian, English and Russian, communicating when necessary. A2/B1 modules were demonstrated and the workshop participants had their hands-on experience to learn how the platform works so that they can continue learning the language chosen on their own using the advantages of e-learning course. The learners really enjoyed the course, especially that the materials are similar in 12 languages, as they find it beneficial for learning a new language.

Workshop at Turiba University-2017

On 23 January 2017 two workshops were held for learners at Turiba University. The learners were introduced with the “Key Skills for European Hotel Staff” project and outputs created as well as with the new project “Language skills and intercultural issues in the hospitality industry: unity in diversity in the EU labour market” focusing on the new outputs to be created.

After this introduction the learners had a hands-on experience on exploring the learning program. They studied A2/B1 English course – the modules “Management offices”, “Hotel Business Centre”, “Hotel Reception” and B2/C1 modules “Hotel Front Office” and “Hotel Management” by their choice. Since the students’ language levels differed, they chose different modules and they were satisfied with this flexibility. The students also enjoyed the design and structure of the learning program.

Project dissemination for first-year students at Ekonomska šola Murska Sobota, Higher vocational schoo

On 25.10.2016 the first-year students of the programme Ekonomist at Ekonomska šola Murska Sobota, Higher vocational school attended the presentation of the EU project »Key Skills for Hotel Industry Staff« which was finished in autumn 2016. I showed them the FrontDesk programs and the applications which were created for smartphones and explained them how they worked. I also showed them the applications on my smartphone so that they could see for themselves and showed them where on the e-platform they could download them. Then I presented the Moodle e-platform for learning. I showed them all the modules and study material for A2/B1 language level and we did some exercises in English, Slovenian and German. I also mentioned that those modules are available in 12 European languages (DE, EN, ES, FR, GR, HR, HU, IT, LV, RO, RU, SI) several times. Then I presented the 6 modules for the higher language level B2/C1 available in English and explained the differences to A2/B1 level. We did some exercises so that they could see the difference for themselves. I mentioned a few times that the e-platform is available to anybody interested in languages and can be accessed by anyone who wants to learn or improve their language skills. I also emphasized that access to the Moodle learning platform is free. Before we finished I showed them where and how to register on the Moodle e-platform so that they could use the study material and do the exercises.
