BEST Institute for vocational training and personal training GmbH


This LEONARDO DA VINCI project focusses on developing adequate language skills for individuals that operates small tourism enterprises by offering suitable language courses using open distance learning (ODL).

The project aims to build upon the results of other Community programmes and initiatives such as GRUNDTVIG and INTEREG in which small tourism companies and entrepreneurs have been funded, through networks and organisations to develop their business idea and concept in the tourism sector.

The partners will…

  • design language courses that are suitable for the entrepreneurs needs in accordance with pedagogical aspects of CLIL and ODL.
  • conduct a pilot phase.
  • match the outcomes of the pilot tests with the draft models developed in the previous development phases and will, if appropriate, revise those models accordingly.The materials will be designed as web-based materials for free download. Print versions for dissemination and presentation purposes will also be produced.
  • incorporate the designed material at their institutes or institutes in their network, which will increase the sustainability of the project and further enhance the accessibility of LLL for the small tourism entrepreneurs.
