Events of the European Day of Languages

BitliS Bilsem Avrupa Dil Günü'nü Kutluyor

Other activity, 29.08.2018 - 31.10.2018, Bitlis, Turkey

We created an eTwinning project to celebrate EDL. The aim of the project is to celebrate the European Day of Languages together in an international way. We work on different tasks to promote intercultural dialogue through different forms of learning and students’ cooperation. The project 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. During the implementation of the project, the students make new friends, they increase their awareness of the worth of their and others’ cultural heritage.

Every school and student make one postcard for each of the partner schools with 3 sentences in the first language and in English. The project was full of additional activities such as videoconrerences, singing together (a compilation of songs in our national lgs), videos exchange, tongue twister challenge, ecards exchange (a collaborative presentation), multilingual e-book about us, our countries and languages, collaborative word cloud about how to say "hello" in our languages and more.

Our project provide each partner school with the materials (postcards, songs, recordings, presentations etc.) to celebrate the European Day of Languages in their own unique way and give students the satisfaction of helping each other with the preparations for the event.
