Marketing Text LL-Medics on the Move aims to address the needs of language discordant medical professionals, and is therefore not developed as a traditional contact-teaching programme. It is developed in six target languages (English, Danish, Dutch, German, Italian and Swedish) and offers five interface languages (Arabic, Polish, Romanian, Russian, and Turkish). The programme provides material for autonomous learning, thereby allowing the medical professional to improve his language competence at any place and at any moment. Medics on the Move further anticipates the hectic lifestyle of the medical professional by making the language tool accessible from web-enabled mobile devices, such as smartphones, IPhones and Blackberrys. Medics-on-the-Move therefore can be regarded as an on-the-job, just-in-time learning tool that ties in with the demands of the medical profession by allowing for autonomous learning.
Description The LL-MoM project provides the learner with 10 different scenarios. The scenarios build on each other in terms of vocabulary, grammar, and ear training and performance. The programme is cyclical, which implies that important language features are repeated in the materials. Each scenario starts with a text that is also offered with audio. The scenarios are complemented by four modules focusing on meaning, form, sound and communication. Each module contains an extensive training component with exercises. The module meaning contains wordmaps, which are semantic fields. Important words are clickable and more information about them can be found in a searchable basic glossary. The module form focuses on grammar and offers a contextualized grammar component. The module sound offers an ear-training and performance component, which also involves pedagogical tips for pronunciation in different languages. Finally, the module communication focuses on efficient communication.
