Methods for teaching foreign languages

The consortium has selected five communicative language teaching methods suitable for VET teachers and their students, especially those preparing for or in the midst of work placement in other countries. For each method the project developed sets of materials and instructions for exemplary lessons. To help the training of the less experienced teachers the use of the methods and materials are demonstrated through instructional video recordings of exemplary lessons. Our main outputs to be translated, adapted and transferred are:-A video library with subtitled commented recordings of the five methods used in real classes. -Five manuals presenting the 5 methods, instructions and ready to copy and use materials -An International Work Placement Guide-A website.This project will transfer the BP-BLTM results to France (Guadeloupe), Malta and Slovenia by adapting and translating the guide, the methods manuals, the ready to use in classes materials and the subtitles for the project videos and run a large number of teacher courses.After the first transfer the partnership's teachers will be coached in the 5 methods at workshops. These will be followed by peer review of their teaching in own classes to ensure best application of the methods. These teachers become “multipliers” and run similar workshops followed by peer review in order to exploit, evaluate and further adapt the materials.The project consortium comprises VET colleges from FR, MT, and SI involved in language teaching and work placement. The DK partner was the coordinator of the BP-BLTM project.The project will run pilot courses, to evaluate the best ways of running courses, and then we will be running official courses for language teachers, or other interested parties.We also aim at the tourism sector, to include these people in the development of the acquisition of foreign language skills.
