The main activities are: -posters of the learners’ linguistic profile and other posters inspired by the EDL -recipes of Learning Languages -EDL Treasure hunt -posters of ‘The Human Rights Tree’ in English, French or more languages as a final product of studying the EU charter of Fundamental Rights -matching the themes/ topics of our lessons with the relevant fundamental rights -exhibition of the posters and other work on school boards -and more
