 Celebration, 24 Sep 2020 - 25 Sep 2020, Porto, Portugal

We celebrated EDL with all of our students through a challenge held in language and citizenship classes, hanging the event's posters around the school and distributing "Talk to me" stickers to the whole community. Inspired on the handbook and provided by the CoE, we created a list of tasks that our young VET learners were challenged to do in foreign spoken and sign languages of their choice, and used gamification tools to create an engaging dynamic that they enjoyed a lot. Our goal was to raise their awareness for the wide number of European languages, their diversity and the importance of protecting them.
