Tempus project in advanced training of English and French language teachers at the Faculty of Roman and German Philology of Tyumen State University


Members of the consortium: Tyumen State University, University of Wolverhampton (Great Britain), University of Stendhal in Grenoble (France). Project Coordinators: G. Telegina (TyumSU) and M. Townsend (University of Wolverhampton). The grant amount is 100,000 ECU.

As a result of successful implementation of the project, Tyumen State University, in difficult post-perestroika time, had a first time opportunity to take part in internships held in European universities; to improve the professional skills of 15 teachers of English and French; to establish academic contacts with foreign universities and, subsequently, to successfully develop them. In addition, an impetus was given to the reform of the system of teaching foreign languages ​​in Tyumen State University, supported later by the European Union in the form of three more Tempus projects in the field of foreign language teaching.
