The [email protected] Project
The knowledge of the foreign languages is a key element for a good employability. New Technologies can make the language learning process more user friendly and enjoyable. Practical simulation and role-playing can be developed using appropriate interaction multimedia tools. Language students should have the opportunity to learn using these new tools which are based on the combination of different media. Language teachers and trainers should have the possibility to acquire the skills to use teaching strategies and materials that are based on an effective application of new technologies.

In this context the European Commission has financed the [email protected] project in the framework of the Lifelong Learning Programme (Leonardo - Transfer of Innovation)

The project is coordinated by Pixel in cooperation with partners from Belgium, Germany, Italy and Spain.

The aim of the [email protected] project is the promotion of the ELS Portal. The ELS Portal is a powerful online resource for those who are willing to improve their language competence in a business context. The ELS Portal offers:
  • 5 online language courses: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish.
  • 10 Business Culture modules that offer a look into the different business environments of 10 European Countries.
  • An online glossary of business terms is available in 8 different European languages.
  • A personal development module that helps people recognise and develop their potential to succeed.
The [email protected] project made the ELS Portal available to more than 120 secondary school teachers and to more than 140 employed people in European Companies.

The project partners have organised several workshops involving the final users and promoting the use of the ELS Portal.
