Communicative knowledge of this language is one of the key skills in the professional life of a hotel worker, a tradesman and an economist. Hence, it is important to develop and improve the language by using it in real life situations - customer service of guests and speakers of this language. The result of the project will be the strengthen sense of entrepreneurship, creativity and independence of young tradesmen, hoteliers and economists. Participants in the project will increase their adaptability to working in an international team, deepen tolerance for cultural differences.
