Inter-Language: the New Project by ProMosaik

Since its foundation, the
association ProMosaik, which focusses on tolerance and
promotion of cultural diversity, has used different languages to engage itself
for peace and human rights in different cultures and religions.

From the synergy of members and
supporters of the association, a new project has been created following several
months of association discussions, and concerns the offer of online language
tuition courses over Skype. Such activity ideally fits with the association’s
focus on languages and cultural diversity and helps practical implementation of
the linguistic-cultural vision of ProMosaik.
The members of ProMosaik are aware
that language and culture are two sides of the same coin. Languages represent
cultural expressions whose linguistic forms diffuse a message. Cultural comprehension
can only
occur with an understanding of any given culture’s spoken language. In this
sense, language courses represent an efficient means of getting acquainted with
different people’s cultures. For us language means intercultural dialogue and
as a consequence such cultural exchanges and transmission between different
people’s serves to enlighten and enrich the comprehension, respect for, and
appreciation of other people’s cultures.

Implementation of the Project 

Many members of the association
ProMosaik are language teachers with the necessary linguistic-cultural
competences to teach languages. In order to overcome the unavoidable problem of
geographic distances, the well-known program Skype will be used. By using
Skype’s teleconferencing, students can participate in the language course while
being directly in contact with their tutors.
Requests for language courses,
may be made by directly contacting the editorial team of ProMosaik by email or
by phone. Your request should include information about the language you would
like to study and the time schedule that would best suit you. Then, the
editorial team of ProMosaik intermediates between demand and offer and cares
about the organisational aspects of the language course.
The Skype technology eliminates
costs: there are no specific rooms, because we use Skype as place of encounter
between teacher and learner so that they can get in touch directly one with
another. The language courses offered over Skype are cost-effective: one
lessons costs 25,00 Euro. 5,00 Euro are destined to the association offering
the service. For group courses, the total is split under the participants.
The most obvious advantage of online
courses is their flexibility. In some cases, the fix time schedules of
traditional offers can be an obstacle. Since even the most motivated learners
face the challenge of having to adapt the time schedule of the course to their
personal time schedule. But with courses over Skype this problem can be solved
easily: the courses are carried out at advantageous times for the learner(s) by
adapting them to their time schedule. 
We are convinced that this new offer
can be interesting for many users. Therefore, we would be very happy to provide
more information about this new and precious service to all who may be
interested in it.

At the moment, we can offer language
course for the following languages:
German, English, Italian, French,
Arabic, Turkish, Spanish, Portuguese, Greek, and Russian. 
We are very happy to welcome you to
an initial discussion over Skype to speak about your requests in order to put
you in touch with your teacher.
