VIRTUAL REALITY FOR LANGUAGE LEARNERS

VR can provide language learners with the opportunity to immerse themselves in a wide variety of engaging environments and work collaboratively to perform a range of different tasks. This project to develop VR materials has obtained EU funding through the Erasmus KA2 scheme.

DEMONSTRATING OUR PROJECT RESULTS

 

As the VR4LL project comes to an end, we were able to demonstrate the materials we have developed during the ADRIES conference in Split, Croatia.

We have also finalised the Teachers' Notes (a complete guide to using VR4LL)  which you can download here.

NEXT GENERATION PLACEMENT TESTS

The main objective of this project is to develop a computer-based, pre-course assessment tool that will accurately measure the current level of adult language learners. In the first instance, this tool will be available to learners of six languages: English, French, Spanish, German, Italian and Russian. The key characteristics of this pre-course assessment tool is that it will be adaptive. In other words, it will select items to present to students from a large data base of options, depending on their previous responses. This will
avoid the need to answer questions that are either too hard or too easy, and home in on each student’s actual level. Another key characteristic is that it will be available online, on computers or mobile devices, with a user friendly interface featuring instructions in a range of languages. Data from the test results will be immediately accessible both by the test takers and by the institutions organising the courses.

CITY STORIES

Rudyard Kipling once said: “If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten.” The aim of this project is to use the power of story telling to help learners of English improve their language skills. The stories are set in three of Europe's most attractive cities and learners will navigate their way through them using Digital Escape Rooms...

Here are two of the stories that are set in Barcelona:

GREEN STANDARD SCHOOLS

A summary of the Erasmus project

MAIN AIMS

Language schools across the EU teach hundreds of thousands of students every year. Of course these students attend language schools primarily in order to improve their language skills, rather than learn about environmental issues, but our contention is that we can achieve both goals simultaneously. In other words we can improve students’ language skills while, at the same time, focusing their attention on environmental issues. Given the number of language students the sector has access to, the overall impact could be significant.


The principle objective of this project therefore is to develop a series of study materials designed for adult learners of English, Spanish and French, that focus on environmental issues, while ensuring that students also make excellent progress with their language aims and objectives.

PARTNER ORGANISATIONS

Apart from Molehill Holdings, the project partners include French in Normandy IH Rouen, Jantar IH Split, and IH Galway. These partners were selected based on their experience in materials development and/or teacher training, as well as their commitment to the values of the Green Standard Schools association.
