E3 Speak English- Austria – MOOCs in English as 2nd Language Multiplier Event in Austria

On June 9th, 2022, BEST Institut für berufsbezogene Weiterbildung und Personaltraining GmbH organised SPEAK ENGLISH MOOC Multiplier Event in Vienna, Austria. The project and its aims were introduced to some 20 participants, followed by a presentation of the Speak English MOOC. They had then the opportunity to learn more about the main features which reflect everyday situations and provide interactive contexts. They then also heard more details and experiences from the piloting phase that was organised in Austria with learners keen on improving their English Speaking Skills.  

The event was successful. Participants showed their interest in the MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) units and the learning contents the partnership developed. 

An evaluation at the end of the event confirmed the satisfaction of the Austrian Multiplier Event participants in general with the event itself, and with the presented project outcomes. Participants agreed that the Speak English MOOC offered appealing interactive and practice-oriented contents (like videos, audio and similar) which would catch their interest to also go through the course or parts of it, as well as recommend it and/ or use it with English learners.
