Enjoy Language within Tourism

How to Attract Participation and Increase Motivation of Young Male Language Learners Working in the Tourist Sector 

Partners: Sweden (coordinator), Austria, Finland, United Kingdom, Bulgaria, Greece

The overall objective of the project is to enable young males working in the tourist sector with particular “foreign language learning resistance” to establish their “enjoying language” by increasing their interest and uptake of foreign languages and to increase their participation in the lifelong learning society.

The project aims to make a useful addition to the training of tourism workers by adapting, testing, disseminating and mainstreaming language learning materials using informal learning still regarded as innovative or little known in many areas. The content of the languages taught will be related to work in tourism and will be made available in the form of a Handbook and a Toolbox of material for teachers.
