PROJECT TITLE: EuroTraffic Language Training (ETRALT)

PROJECT No.: 2011- 7932

AGREEMENT No.: 2011-1-SI1- LEO05-02789

DURATION: 15.10.2011 - 14.10.2013

TOTAL BUDGET: 193.644,00 €

Leonardo da Vinci GRANT: 145.233,00 €

PROJECT SUMMARY:

The project focuses on the acquisition of basic communication skills needed in the road traffic sector. The main aim of the project is to develop clearly structured and audio-visually supported language learning material: a free web-based language course for linguistic preparation for mobility, for teaching workplace-related language at traffic and police schools and for providing language learning support to the professionals of the target sector. The course content is based on the evaluation of the needs analysis covering the main target groups. The results of the project will fill the gap in modern, cross-curricular vocationally oriented language teaching/learning materials by making the course applicable for integration into the curriculum, respond to the needs of transport enterprises for a time-saving and user-friendly language training course which can be used either for guided learning or self-study. They will also offer help to professionals in the traffic sector and frequent road travellers to communicate more efficiently in most frequent problem situations on the road.

TARGET GROUPS:

  • professional drivers
  • police officers
  • students and teachers in vocational education and training for the road traffic sector
  • participants in mobility projects for the target sector
  • other (for example frequent travellers on European roads)

 

EXPECTED IMPACT:

The expected impact of the project is: better communication skills for solving emergency situations on the road, better quality of work placements within mobility actions in the target sector and increased motivation for the acquisition of key communication skills in a foreign language by transport companies.
