University language project holds free welcome lunch

A University of Wolverhampton learning project which uses TV soaps and other media to help develop language skills will hold a free welcome lunch.

The ‘Languages in Media’ (LiMe) project aims to support adult migrant learners by providing them with online tools to decode language and culture as portrayed in various types of media.

The project is a Key Activity 2 Multilateral Project funded by the European Commission and forms part of their Lifelong Learning Programme.

And on Thursday, November 28, the group is holding an information session at the TLC College, in Dunstall Road, Wolverhampton.

It takes place from 12pm with sandwiches and refreshments, followed by a talk and trial of the resources.

Angela Molinari, Head of Language Networks for Excellence at the University of Wolverhampton, said: “The project tackles the teaching and learning of languages and culture whereby a clear understanding of both would serve to integrate people more effectively and allow them to feel part of their local community.

“Although cultural analysis is often included within language courses, the integration of migrant learners can be enhanced through the use of media as a source for cultural and linguistic skill training.”

To register for the event, email j.asbertbalart@wlv.ac.uk.
