Innovative foreign language teaching methods in VET as support to tourism sector
The “Task-Based Language Learning Toolkit for Tourism: Innovative foreign language teaching methods in VET as support to tourism sector” aims to address the issue concerning language and soft skills proficiencies of those active in tourism sector by upskilling VET and English language educators in the use of TBL, an innovative language learning methodology. It will equip teachers and trainers with the skills needed to both successfully implement a task-based syllabus and convince other stakeholders of the importance and relevance of a task-based approach to English foreign language learning.
Through greater targeting of support for these teachers using this approach towards English foreign language learning, those active in tourism industry will be better able to acquire the language and soft skills required by sector and or in the workplace of their selected vocation. The desired outcome is that they will then be able to achieve higher levels of employability, showcase their businesses and be more resilient to crisis situations due to the fact that they will have a core set of foreign language and transversal competencies that make them a far more lucrative asset in the European labour market.
