The future of language studies

24. May 2019

The two-day FIID conference „Language Learning 4.0“ in Guadelajara focused on the future of language studies. It was organised by the ÖSD exam centre Proulex. The ÖSD participated with a speech titled “Communicative testing and pluricentric approach at ÖSD particularly with regard to the exam situation in Mexico” (“Kommunikatives Testen und plurizentrischer Ansatz bei ÖSD im Hinblick auf die Prüfungssituation in Mexiko”). The participants from all over Mexico showed great interest in this presentation. Roughly 3,000 teachers for German, English, French, Italian, Mandarin and Spanish as foreign languages took the chance to exchange their knowledge and visit many of the exhibitor booths.
Prior to the conference, Proulex organised a multi-day examiner training event (levels A2, B1, and B2) for participants from various ÖSD exam centres across Mexico. We were very happy with the successful outcome and want to thank head examiner Ksenija Kos, and her team for their cooperation to host this very beneficial event.
