Events of the European Day of Languages

Let's promote diversity - the European Day of Languages

Dissemination of good practice, 25.08.2017 - 08.10.2017, Żary, Poland

The aim of the project is to celebrate the European Day of Languages together in an international way. We are going to work on different tasks to promote intercultural dialogue through different forms of learning and students’ cooperation. The project will prove that ICT and teamwork can add to pupils’ motivation and involvement in language lessons as well as enhance critical thinking and social, civic and intercultural competences. In the project teachers also can exchange their ideas how to organise the EDL at school as well as to share interesting ways for classes promoting cultural and linguistic diversity. During the implementation of the project, the students will make new friends, they will increase their awareness of the worth of their and others’ cultural heritage.
Students will make postcards for every partner school and record themselves speaking and singing in their own beautiful languages, but they are also free to choose among a number of volunteer activities.
