Abstract [en]

We want  to present an example of how  to integrate language  for specific purposes (LSP) in language courses for engineers through collaborative online international activities (COIL). These activities are implemented in a flipped classroom (FC) and blended learning format (BL) which gives flexibility and enables online projects. COIL activities are particularly well suited for LSP as it offers a student-owned, authentic and engaging way to practice language skills. COIL activities can be defined as project-based learning where the context defines the learning tasks. In that way, students develop deep content knowledge: collaboration, communication skills including e-communication, intercultural competence, which prepare them for professional situations. We  will  share  examples  based  on  COIL  activities  developed  in  courses  of  French  and  German  for engineering  students,  from  A2  to  B2  levels.  By  sharing  these  practices,  we  hope  to  inspire  other teachers and develop more COIL projects.
