This short film is a additional instrument in order to sensitize learners (especially from the tourist sector) about the importance of knowing foreign languages, our movie was used during the demonstration events, on the occasion of other events related to the project subject.

In order to enhance the visibility of the project and demonstrate our products , VHS Cham coordinating institution took part in Expolingua fairs, where total amount of participants was about 10 000 visitors, during the fairs also 180 exhibitors from more than 30 countries were present. During 3 days of fairs we had presented our handbook in partners’ languages. Each visitor could try our learning platform with exercises choosing a language or concept e.g. self-directed or family learning. Addtionally the handbooks were available for education providers. Participation in fairs was an opportunity to introduce the concepts implemented in the project to language teachers, language providers but also to learners (especially to increase interest in self-directed learning). The presentation of the project was accompanied by project movie, dissemination of project’s flyers, posters and lanyard keychains with logo Be Multilingual.
