METHODS activities in Slovenia

The second quarterly period of the project was very intensive. The Slovenian team adapted the Simulations Manual and implemented the first pilot course with the colleagues-language teachers at SŠGT Celje. The feedback was encouraging and new ideas for sample lessons emerged from the workshop. Simulations and Task Based Learning were our favourite methods because they suit best for teaching workplace-related language learning in secondary vocational education and promote cross-curricular teaching and learning. The project was successfully disseminated and promoted on the school webpage and at different events like: national conference »Languages in education«, presentation of the Leonardo da Vinci mobility project on the national level, international meetings with partners from other projects, visits of partners from Germany and Hungary etc. The National Education Institute of Republic of Slovenia was contacted for support in further piloting activities which are starting in autumn 2014. Our team has also started translating the adapted manuals for the pilot Methods courses. We look forward to the next project meeting which will be held in Slovenia.
