sintesi italiano

Il progetto trova la sua motivazione principale nel contesto di una sempre più crescente mobilità intra- ed extra-Europea, incoraggiata dalla politica dell’UE e che ha già portato l’Europa ad assumere una dimensione multiculturale alla quale i suoi cittadini non sono tuttora preparati adeguatamente. Indagini condotte in ambito accademico mostrano evidenti problemi comunicativi nella vita quotidiana di tipo istituzionale tra Adulti in Mobilità (AM) e Adulti professionalmente in Contatto con la Mobilità (ACM). Di fronte a tale situazione problematica i libri di testo di L2 non trattano in maniera esaustiva i bisogni linguistico-comunicativi legati al contesto burocratico-istituzionale. Lo scopo del progetto consiste quindi nel costruire una metodologia per la creazione di pacchetti formativi in Comunicazione InterCulturale (ICC) & Lingua Seconda quale Lingua del contesto (L2/Lc) che tengano conto, in modo sistematico, del contesto burocratico- istituzionale. Target diretto per l’acquisizione di tale metodologia sono facilitatori e formatori in ICC nonché formatori in L2/Lc che potranno utilizzarla, in organizzazioni private e pubbliche, per formare a loro volta sia Adulti in Mobilità (lavoratori migranti, turisti, studenti Erasmus, insegnanti, militari, operatori di missioni umanitarie ecc.), sia Adulti professionalmente in Contatto con la Mobilità (operatori sociali, mediatori interculturali, educatori, medici, funzionari front-line, operatori di sportello, insegnanti di L2 e molti altri).


sintesi inglese

Credit Line is a multimedia English course, endorsed by the Chartered Institute of Bankers in London, which aims at training and qualifying banking personnel worldwide by promoting their banking, finance and business language. The project allows the non-native speaker to pass from the so-called “false beginner” to the advanced level, by giving particular attention to contexts, practices and terminologies of modern international business English. Credit Line can help banks, insurance companies, central banks, business schools, finance departments of major companies and pension funds to train their staff in business English in a quick and not expensive way. With this project a company can start and manage a centralised language training programme which can be delivered on line to the even remotest branch. Credit Line is structured in 6 levels (each one consisting of 30 hours of lessons) and it is available on line. Users can create their own learning path through several combinations of self-study, live training and tutoring. Credit Line’ offer includes a web site as well (www.eurolearning.com/creditline) which provides a full range of supporting services: a placement test to help users understand the initial level, the assistance of an on-line tutor, a student forum (where users can talk to each other) and articles from worldwide business and financial newspapers.
