Õpiobajektide sari / Learning objects

This project was developed at the Language Centre of the University of Tartu following the needs of teaching practice. The issue of "location and movement of objects" is included in language learning at the elementary level and concerns all languages taught. Vocabulary and structures that are used here are different in the various languages and the translation into the native language is not a great help to many. So we came up with the idea of recording a video as a visual aid to this topic and make it a starting point of learning objects in eight languages: English, Estonian, German, French, Japanese, Modern Greek, Russian and Swedish. These interactive teaching materials contain not only the grammatical rules of each synchronized video but also a picture dictionary, a glossary of terms in two languages, grammar exercises and vocabulary. For foreigners who start learning a new language, these learning objects offer a possibility to compare the structures of the language with those of the mother tongue and with other languages they master. The learning objects can be used in the classroom as well as independently, they are suitable for all ages and types of schools and are used internationally. The project on learning objects is the result of the cooperation of an international team and included the teachers at the Language Centre of the University of Tartu as well as and colleagues from different countries.
