Marketing Text TESS was designed as a learning and improvement tool of technical English for sport. It is the fruit of a two-year European project which enabled the identification of needs linked to the learning of English related to sport. The tool, which is available in five languages, Bulgarian, French, German, Hungarian and Portuguese, is aimed at a wide public of sport professionals such as coaches, sport managers, athletes and sport participants, students, referees, judges, medical doctors, physiotherapists, scientists, teachers, physical/strength conditioning coaches and event organisers.
In this tool, the main professional situations encountered by sport professionals have been staged to enable them to work more efficiently.
The videos and the activities proposed are based on specific themes encountered in daily situations or in competition for sport professionals. The exercises aim primarily at improving the skills related to oral comprehension, speaking while perfecting pronunciation, vocabulary, fluency, and autonomy which are indispensable to work efficiently on the international sporting scene. In this respect, the innovative aspect of this tool is to offer a range of different accents (American, English, Australian, Scottish, South African etc.) which will help the learner to get used to a multiplicity of the English Language.
