This paper presents an e-collaboration project involving real-time videoconferencing exchanges between students from the University of Westminster and the Université Catholique de Lille. Students drew on diverse resources, including written quantitative data and first-hand qualitative data in French/English to complete weekly tasks. Follow-up work was an integral component of the co-project, taking the form of a series of adaptations in French/English based on the source materials studied and the knowledge of the intercultural issues explored collaboratively. These adaptations, which ensured the development of wider employability expertise, ranged from professional reports to newspaper articles, and from conference papers to information leaflets. A short list of references and links is included. [For the complete volume, "Employability for Languages: A Handbook," see ED566902.]
