“Different Countries…different lives…but inside the same ….hearts!”
Language Week, 26.09.2017 - 29.09.2017, TERAMO, Italy
The “European Day of Languages” is a highly symbolic event among the celebrating initiatives in the Member States, since it recalls the attention on a crucial aspect of the European integration process: the promotion of multilingualism as a driver of growth as well as an incentive to the intercultural dialogue.
Furthermore, it is an unique occasion for showing how the language issue effectively contributes to the building process of the European citizenship, which originates from the diversity but is fully achieved through the exchange and sense of belonging to common principles and values.
The Comprehensive School Institute “Falcone e Borsellino” Teramo 5 Villa Vomano – Basciano, in collaboration with the Europe Direct Centre Teramo, organizes for the “European Day of Languages 2017”, from 26th till 29th September, a set of activities aimed at communicating and disseminating the values of multilingualism and linguistic diversity.
Coherently with the above topics, the slogan ideated for this initiative will be: “Different Countries…different lives…but inside the same ….hearts!”.
The planned activities will be implemented with the pro-active involvement of the students from the participating schools and will consist in: presentation of movies, cartoons and videos in original language; realization of flags or symbols of the main European capitals (such as monuments, typical dishes, traditional clothes…) with posters, iconic productions, multimedia paths (slides, PowerPoint presentations) or other materials; short dramatic dialogues in foreign language; performances related to the different national cultural traditions; realization of translation exercises of idiomatic phrases in the various official European languages. During the event, the primary School of Basciano will host the immigrates present in the area. This activity has a relevant importance, since it aims at valorizing the social dimension of the linguistic diversity and educating the involved students on the mutual benefits deriving from a 360° inclusion.
