LANGUAGE COURSE CREATORS WANTED- GERMAN, FRENCH, ITALIAN, RUSSIAN: Job 00004268
Source language(s): English
Target language(s): German, French, Russian, Italian
Details of the project: Iam looking for native German, French , Russian, and Italian speaking persons who can create effective language teaching manuals, with the objective of teaching essential communication. The objective is not grammatical correctness or mastery, the objective is to be able to communicate. Generally it takes only around 200 words to make a casual conversation and manage everyday life in a foreign language. I am looking for persons who can intelligently pick those 200 words and use those as building blocks to create sentences, starting from small sentences to bigger sentences.
This is how babies learn to talk!
If you understand this concept, and you can create a manual that will give the user the language mastery of a four year old native toddler, that is what we need!
The manual will include audio also (we will provide software for audio recording if needed)
Basically this is what I am looking for:
1.Identify a core vocabulary list that consists of the words that can be used the most in every day conversations so that day to day activities may be accomplished without any problems. This would include common nouns, verbs, adjectives, prepostions, conjunctions etc.
2.Design a way in which these words can be used in a variety of circumstances, and how to build on that basic knowledge to build simple sentences to communicate with.
words: want, hamburger, cheese, dont want, one more
I want a hamburger
I want a hamburger without cheese
I dont want a hamburger
I want one more hamburger
I want a ticket
I want a ticket to Helsinki
3. Use imaginative settings in which the person can make those conversations. You don't have to follow any established routines or 'tourist handbook' approach. It could be 'Conversation in the kitchen' 'Conversation at bus stop' 'On a train', 'Meeting someone in a library' 'Flirting with someone in the park' , or any thing your imagination can produce.
But imagine each scenario in detail, and think in depth about it.
The fee for each language is US $ 400.
Special requirements to the applicants: Should be a native speaker of the languages mentioned and residing in a country that speaks that language. Must be very fluent in English in addition to the specific language that you are qualified in.
Who can apply: Freelancers only
Deadline for applying: 03/30/2010
