The project has developed a Grundtvig 3 qualification course for language teachers and trainers containing specific teaching methods for senior citizens

Language Course Teaching Methods for Senior Citizens

Together with partner institutions from Germany, France, Italy, Czech Republic and Sweden the project collects and compiles already existing research materials, experience from experts in language teaching for senior citizens and develops a curriculum and methodological toolbox. The project content and results are spread through a variety of dissemination activities, including a European Mulitplier Seminar, to all EU member states.

Target groups

The project activities are directed to language course providers, teachers, trainers who work with senior citizens (50 +) in context of language teaching. Teachers and trainers will receive a curriculum and toolbox with learning materials that increases the participation of senior citizens in language courses and helps to avoid their drop out.

Additionally, national and European senior citizen organisations and networks will receive the project materials for integrating it into their websites in order to make it available.
