GENERIC METHOD, CONTENT AND TOOLS FOR MULTILINGUAL EDUCATION PROJECT
Allover the world, and particularly in Europe , multilingual and multicultural environments are encouraged and diverse languages and cultures are taken under conservation. “European Language Passport” is a personal tool intended for all Europeans to become multicultural and multilingual, for use during contact with different cultures, and to guide the language learning process. Researches show that the need for foreign language learning increases gradually.
“Generic methods, content and tools for multilingual education” project endeavors to develop a distance education platform that will provide the opportunity to develop and present language education programs intended for diverse languages, which will enable foreign language education via the Internet.
One target of this project is individuals who want to learn another foreign language, using the desired language. Another target of the project is corporate or organizations, both domestic and abroad, which desire their language to be taught through other languages, or other languages to be taught through their own language. It is possible to develop project partnership with those organizations.
The goal of the project is to do research on how diverse languages can be learnt through a common method and construct a generic platform according to the results of this research. A research and development phase, where method and media studies interlace, is designed. In the application phase, initially a structure for European languages is constructed, and a model for a single language is developed. In this phase, the necessary multimedia components are produced, and structures and tools peculiar to language are added. One of the basic elements of the model is the learning objects, which will be developed according to the objectives of the European Language Portfolio, grammar structures of the language and measurement and evaluation elements.
This approach will enable the development directed at common components of languages in general, support for functions and skills peculiar to language education and addition of diversities between languages, and cultures.
Deriving from the fact that the project proposes not only a tool, but also a model and a method for corporate and individuals who aim to develop a new language education through the platform, and support those with multimedia components developed uniquely for language education, the project is expected to bring about significant financial gain.
The transfer of Dialecture learning objects into the platform was accomplished.
The test-publishing of the prepared platform and the content has started on the internet.
