Multimedia didactics – The Art and Science of Teaching Host Country Language
Foreigners and university study? A new project of Language School PELICAN will enable them to prepare for entrance exams in the host-country language.
The project partners aim to create tools for combining distance learning and self-study. Foreigners interested in university studies will be able to use them to master the chosen language at a level sufficient to successfully pass the entrance exams and commence university studies.
An important element is the solution of authentic situations and acquaintance with the culture and system of the selected country. The university roadmap will offer practical information on study opportunities in partner countries and intensive language preparation for entrance exams. The core of the project is then a set of methods and tools based on the neuro-didactic concept for intensive language study of the host country’s language as a foreign language.

The tools will be tailored to the needs of distance learning and self-study. The outputs of the project will be complemented
by a handbook for the organizers of such forms of study from language schools and other institutions, as well as an internet
platform with an online library of created tools.
