About this app

This tool is innovative compared to standard tourism based language training, it aims to map the key language needs of 4 niche sectors. This approach of being driven by the needs of the tourism sector by identifying common threads to put into the app is not only unique in that it covers multiple niches in the tourism industry but it allows the ‘core’ vocabulary to be used by other tourism subsectors. The lanuages available are English, Arabic, Chinese, Croatian, French, German, Greek, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Turkish.

The 4 niche sectors which are covered are:

1) Historical tourism: will include history, archaeology, architecture, museums, commemoration and remembrance, folklore, as well as tradition and religion.
2) Event tourism: e.g. festivals, music and sports events.
3) Rural and outdoor tourism: e.g. most aspects of the following: walking or hiking, canoeing, rafting, skiing, hunting, angling, cycling, mountain biking, farm holidays.
4) Culinary tourism: this would include beer and sprits, fine dining and wine.

The 1000 words and phrases will be developed on the following basis. 400 words will be everyday or core words, the basic building blocks for speaking a language. (We will include a good proportion of everyday words and phrases that a tourist is likely to want to use or understand). 600 specialist words and phrases will be developed, spread across the 4 niche tourism areas described above.

The vision of this tool is to increase the use of foreign language in the tourism sector, giving even small businesses the chance to grow and benefit of incoming guests from outside the EU.
