Most of learners came from Italian background however we had one Latvian learner. They were professionals in their fields so level of education was high. Our learners had reasonable ICT skills but not much of on-line learning experience. Some of them used paper dictionary or Google translate. The learner came here for training purpose as a part of the European project. You can say they were our experiment group because on a local level we had almost concluded the delivery with other learners and it was hard to schedule anything due to summer break approaching fast so we had to use alternative option. The important thing is that they enjoyed the English lessons and learning about new resources/tools to improve their English language.
The course ran over a period of four days and 2 hours per lesson however most of the time the course ran over due to keen engagement of learners. The learner’s knowledge of language was B1 – C1. The course was prepared and delivered through Creative learning which is part of Community Action Dacorum. The course material was prepared by keeping topic and learning objectives of learners in mind. The course material covered using European Projects application form, glossary related to EU projects, on-line resource. Wide board and flip charts also were used. The course was taught by a qualified teacher for English as a foreign language using interactive approach.
The course was aimed at providing participant business English knowledge because they were professional as well as improving their English speaking skills.
