Zascerinska, Jelena
Online Submission, Paper presented at the European Conference on Education Research, "From Teaching to Learning" (Gothenburg, Sweden, Sep 8-9, 2008)
In order to become "the most competitive and dynamic knowledge-based economy in the world capable of sustainable economic growth with more and better jobs and greater social cohesion" the European Union realizes its people as the most important asset. Moreover, every human becomes a value for the whole society. It makes significant to take into consideration one of the principal elements recommended by the Commission Memorandum for a coherent strategy in order to succeed that is to allow people to acquire or refresh the skills needed for sustained participation in the knowledge-based society. The greatest importance of the continuing professional learning that is a kind of research process is the use of 3-5 languages, with at least 2-3 on the level of native/first language in order to form varied cooperative networks for the creation of new knowledge. Thus, the novelty of the present study is in a new outlook on English for Academic Purposes studies as an integral part of professional learning. (Contains a bibliography.)
