Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The Official School of Languages of Elda (EOI Elda) is a state educational institution dedicated to teaching foreign languages mainly to adult people. Most of our students are either people who have never had the opportunity to study languages, or people who having studied languages in the past, want to start or continue studying them in order to improve their prospects of finding employment. Our teaching staff is made up of 31 teachers divided into five language departments : German, French, English, Italian and Valencian. The school has 3650 students in four locations : Elda, Novelda, Petrer and Villena . We teach languages ranging from A1 to C2 level of the Common European Framework for languages. Since the EOI Elda was established in 2008, the school has proved to be a very active institution, coordinating the creation of curricula for MCER levels C1 & C2 for the Valencian Region. Each year we participate in the design of exams aimed to certificate A2 to C2 levels. During the last three academic years we have also been training English teachers from nursery, primary, secondary and vocational training that will be teaching in the future in the plurilingual schools located in our region. Among our collaborators are not just institutions related to the field of education (Universities, Vocational Training Schools) but also organizations from other fields (Red Cross, Fundación Paurides, etc). One of the objectives by European Commision for all European citizens are "Mother tongue plus two". We collaborate with it by offering 5 languages in a number of course modalities (daily, intensive, classes twice a week, etc.). It is our aim to adapt to our students´current needs. That is why, following the European lines for action in the European Framework of key competences for lifelong learning, our school is carrying out initiatives for our students to: reach a foreign language competence fulfilling their needs at work and in their private lives, helping them to attain a digital competence helping them in their communicative process in the foreign language- transferable to their own fields of interest-, become autonomous in the learning of the language and help them to value language and cultural diversity. The activities planned are courses on ICT, language mediation and intercultural communication. The results of the training will be integrated into the classroom right away having a direct impact on all of our students. In addition in the mid term we plan to launch a new offer for Vocational training in " Linguistic and intercultural mediation " which will offer new job prospects for young unemployed in industries of the region exporting their goods and in the community services offered to the European residents and immigrants in the area.
