Audio-visual Media in L2 Teaching is a Grundtvig Learning Partnership with partners from 4 countries: Cyprus, Germany, Italy and the United Kingdom.
The main aim of the project is to share good practice in using audiovisual material for L2 adult language education. The project will concentrate on developing material and teaching methods for the languages relevant to partner institutions with a special focus on issues of intercultural communication and non-native speakers’ integration. After conducting research into the benefits resulting from the use of audiovisual media in L2 teaching the partners will develop audiovisual material, integrate it into teaching units and consequently test the developed material in trial courses. After a period of trial and adaptation the material as well as suggestions for its use will be published on the project’s website. At the end of the project all produced material will be published on a database also containing suggestions for its use in L2 courses.
During the project’s duration partners from 4 EU countries will meet in order to discuss the issues in question, state criteria for the development of teaching material using audiovisual media, discuss possible problems arising from the use of such material and their solutions. The program will also include presentations of the developed material and the methodology in the local community with the organization of teacher training events and presentations. After the end of the project the developed material will be accessible on the projects’ website together with relevant articles, information about research, interesting links. etc. The aim of the partnership is to continue the cooperation after the end of the project continuously updating the website and the published material.
