About the project...

General information on project type:

Language oriented Bilateral School Partnerships involve two schools from different participating countries and seek to encourage the use of European languages by giving pupils the possibility to  practice their foreign language skills and acquaint themselves with the language of a partner  country.   

Pupils involved in a bilateral partnership are expected to learn at least the basics of the  language used in the partner institution. Usually pupils use a third language as their working and  communication language. During the project, pupils and teachers in both countries work together  on a common theme and produce a joint end product.

Each participating institution must carry  out a class exchange to its partner institution of a duration of minimum 10 days each and  involving pupils aged 12 or older. During the class exchanges, pupils work together at school and  are hosted in each others' families. The cooperation should not only be limited to the exchanges but activities should cover the whole project period. read more...

Learn - learning a new language from another European country and improving the English language skills in the same time is a step toward European sustainable citizenship. Even if it is foreign language for both partners English will be the lingua Franca of the project. Any language is a tool that can be used for fighting against racism, xenophobia and negative stereotyping. Any intercultural contact is an opportunity for innovation and sustainable development. read more...
