Further Information



The idea for the project and its realisation are motivated on one hand by the new needs of the language learners in the context of the integration of the societies and the global informational exchange, and on the other, by the natural striving for development of the project promoter, Language school “Prestige”, Bulgaria. The development of the module takes three years of work and a in-depth research on existing world practices in the field as well as on the students’ willingness to take advantage of such kind of education.
A business plan was developed for the establishment of a Centre for multimedia education and Internet, which is a necessary technical prerequisite for the realisation of the project idea.


The project is aimed at teaching English and German for all levels (A, B, C), using multimedia and learning products


The used approach is based on integration of the new educational possibilities for the contemporary informational technologies with the traditional ones which a language learning progress requires, aiming at creating synergies between them, hence the name of the module – “Plus”.


The main results of the project include:

- Setting up an innovative Centre for multimedia education and Internet with 43 individual places. The learning environment is modernized with the inclusion of computers, multimedia learning materials and Internet.
- Developing a new model for language learning – the “Plus” courses and their spin-off for children and students – the “New generation” model.
- Developing a new kind of lesson – the multimedia lesson.
- The students learning under the module registered better quality of their communication competences in comparison with those going through the standard courses. The module also increased the computer competences of the students.
- The number of users of the module increased from 44 at the project launch to 1,200.
