CAR MECHANICS' PICTIONARY

ERASMUS+ Strategic partnership to benefit the EU car mechanics

Resource will be suitable for continuous learning of learners of all ages. The Online picture dictionary will contain photos of objects instead of animated version of them. This approach will be more practical, focused on hands-on work of car mechanics with diagnostics,
changing car parts and repairing cars. Each vocabulary item will be supported by 1 or more photos depending on the practical need in every case. The Resource will have an enabled search engine by the term and by the letter of alphabet. The Car Mechanics' Pictionary will include such major content parts: Engine, Car Electronics, Transmission, Cassis, Brakes system + ABS, Tools for car mechanics, Hybrid and Electric cars specific terms and vocabulary, Car body types, Car interior, Car exterior, Automobile comfort. The whole capacity of the Online picture dictionary for EU car mechanics will be within the range of 7200 - 7800 vocabulary items - an unprecedented capacity of any Dictionary for car mechanics.
The international aspect of this Resource creation will provide extra value as it gives the outlook of various national experiences and the wider European context avoiding the risks of being too one nation specific. Online picture dictionary for the EU car mechanics will come into being through a number of face to face transnational meetings of creators' teams, discussions, continuous peer-reviewing and monitoring to achieve the highest standard of the educational-professional Material for wide public of Europeans in the Transport sector.
