Multicom 112 Extension Project
The aim of the project was to enhance linguistic competence of emergency services personnel by development of innovative language learning tools. Emergency service personnel must be able to deal with an emergency. To do so effectively requires ability in a number of languages - including Irish, Finnish, Lithuanian, Slovenian, Sami and Basque. The innovative tools provided a self-tuition DVD and Virtual Online Learning Environment for online training with native speakers via project website. These products are particularly suited to the informal learning environment required by emergency services personnel.
Consistency with the European policies in the field of language learning
