Let's Celebrate Languages!

 School project, 13 Sep 2019 - 31 Dec 2019, Vila Nova de Gaia, Portugal

School Adriano Correia de Oliveira is going to celebrate the EDL 2019 once again!

Learning languages is a way of helping us to understand each other better, overcome differences, improve communication skills and promote tolerance and mutual respect. It is our purpose to recall 2019 - International Year of Indigenous Languages declared by the United Nations in order to raise awareness of their important contribution to a 'glocal' world.

The School Library, together with Art, Citizenship, Portuguese and Foreign Language teachers, is going to promote workshops, exhibitions, online quizzes, a Padlet on foreign languages and the opening of an T-Shirt Design Contest at school. The best design/image/graphic selected in our school will be sent to you for the official 2020 EDL T-Shirt next year!

On September 26th, some Sign Language students and teachers from the Oporto School Eugénio de Andrade will visit us to talk about how they work and present some Portuguese Sign Language words. English and French class students will also have the chance to play some language games while they learn important language facts and learn about the countries where they are spoken. Students will then have a chance to leave some comments in a Padlet shared with some eTwinner partners, start designing their own t-shirt and have a lot of fun.
