Language Stay 2.0 - supporting qualitative and sustainable language courses abroad (Li-Lingua) With the implementation of this project, a new, more efficient framework for foreign language courses for the students of the Liechtenstein Gymnasium (LG) will be developed to create more sustainability and quality in this activity . Through the integration, adaptation and application of the same project at the European Centre for Modern Languages (ECML , institution of the European Council) PluriMobil tools newly developed , this new framework is to be created, tested and evaluated within a pilot-language-stay with 109 pupils and 5 teacher at the same time . In 2012 the Pedagogical University "Pädagogische Hochschule in St. Gallen" evaluated the language stays on LG 's and recommended to design this activity more efficiently. This project will follow the recommendation and at the same time the European Commission 's recommendations , as described in the Erasmus program guide + program to promote language learning and linguistic diversity as one of the specific objectives of the program. For more then 10 years the pupils from the LG (10 and 11 school year ) could attend a two weeks language stay abroad, in the 5th and 6th classes offered: 1 year before having the final school leaving examination (Matura) for France, two years before in England. With the objectives in the areas of language studies, a fostering of skills like language and culture, personality formation and learning motivation and learning effects are connected . The LG included the profiles ' Lingua ' and ' New languages' in its program, with a direct relationship to foreign languages and multilingualism. Since 2010/11 the school imlemented a school experiment ( until 2015/16) for linguistically interested students giving the opportunity to obtain a bilingual school leaving examination (Matura). As a result of the project the consortium will develop a so-called LG-PluriMobil toolbox within five workphases and a total of four working meetings, based on the PluriMobil tools which are originally developed by the ECML. Within the consortium the Education Office of the Principality of Liechtenstein (Schulamt des Fürstentum Liechtenstein) will participate with the Institute Interlingua - a longtime organizer of language stays in the Principality of Liechtenstein, the language schools Idiom in France and Totnes European School in U.K., furthermore the ECML from Austria as the innovator ensuring the transfer of innovation, and Global Partners Online Communication Services as central project manager from Liechtenstein. All partners already have been working on joint projects. This project will establish a sustainable and proven in use , validated by accompanying quality assurance measures , new frame structure for the organization of language stays in Liechtenstein . For testing the tools and its implementation a language stay is forseen having 109 pupils of the LG and 5 specialist teachers als participants, for the target country UK. A well-structured internal and external quality management supports the achievement of the project objectives. The dissemination plan provides - in addition to individual activities - the implementation of a multiplier event in Liechtenstein at the end of the project lifetime. This should provide an opportunity to the stakeholders in the educational environment , to receive information on the implementation of PluriMobil within mobility activities and invites all parties for discussion and feedback. For sustainability planning, the LG-PluriMobil Toolbox will be held freely available through the project period on the project website. The project phases are: - Phase 0 Preparation: from project start until the end of October 2014 - Phase 1 innovation transfer and preparation of language stay: Nov. 2014 - March 2015 - Phase 2 implementation language stay: April 2015 - Phase 3 follow-up and evaluation language stay: May 2015 - Nov. 2015 - Phase 4 Dissemination , quality assurance and project end: Nov. 2015 - June 2016 With this project, the key competences "mother language skills" and "foreign language skills", "learning to learn" and "social competence" and "cultural awareness and expression" are addressed.
