CMC: The project in Brief

The objective of the project is to enable university students to improve the quality of their linguistic knowledge as required in trans-national higher education contexts. Specifically, the project aims at producing a software tool which offers multimedia customized language learning materials designed by a partnership made up of six university institutions located in England, Holland, Italy, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain that allows exchange students to develop and improve their academic language skills.
The programme develops a multilingual e-learning environment which includes two principal parts: the academic language learning materials and the information part.
The academic language learning programme contains two academic modules divided into four didactic units (per each module) with tasks, activities and a glossary which are all located on the CMC website with a common academic template for all partners.
The information programme provides information about the exchange universities (accommodation, social events, health insurance etc.) and countries (cultural differences, customs etc.).
This is perceived by means of:
a) a students’ notice-board which allows students to carry out discussion on all questions relating to the programme, university courses, ideas, opinions, suggestions etc.,
b) a forum on language problems supervised by a tutor for each language.

In social terms, the project aims at promoting linguistic and cultural diversity as a means for developing solidarity among young people and knowledge of the culture of other countries.

 Needs the project wants to meet.
Exchange students are frequently called to use essential academic modern language skills in culturally different academic settings and they are not always appropriately trained to do so. They seldom have the opportunity to network and share their concerns with trans-national peers as well.
In this view, European Language Centres or Departments develop tools and materials and implement modern foreign language programmes which provide exchange students the possibility of acquiring specific skill-based competence besides enabling them to establish cooperative peer networks and to develop awareness of multilingual environments.

This project has been funded with support from the European Commission.
