3. Course contents *

Lifelong Language Learning moves away from general learning contents in contact teaching to more specialised and specific forms of training, e.g. online/mobile, on-the-job, just-in-time learning. Professional mobility has led to new demands for language learning and training. Efficient and effective language learning are no new concepts, but the teaching means are being implemented in a different way and the language materials are being adapted to the specific needs of very diverse target audiences.

We will first analyse the domain of professional communication in a European multicultural context.  You will then be guided through the different steps of syllabus and material development on the basis of English language examples. The second half of the course will be task-based where authentic data will help you acquire insights into aspects of cultural and linguistic adjustment in a workplace environment.
