Events of the European Day of Languages

Sing in English! Sing auf Deutsch! Chantez en français!

 School project, 26 Sep 2020 - 31 May 2021, Thessaloniki, Greece

This year our school chooses to sing in the three European languages taught at it: English, German and French. The students choose a song they like in one of these three languages, listen to it and sing it. Moreover, they write its lyrics, translate it in the other European languages, think and write about its message, narrate, paint or draw the story that lies behind it, dance to its rhythm and write or play short sketches inspired by it! For some of the activities the students can use digital tools but they can mostly become artists and creators in their own special way: singers, writers, translators, painters, dancers and actors or actresses. And all these just out of the experience of singing! Sing along!
