A group of 12 students from our school, together with 3 teachers and the headmistress, had a wonderful experience in Jerez de la Frontera (Spain) from December 11th to December 20th. We had the chance of living wonderful moments with our Spanish friends thanks to the Comenius Project "Once upon a time there was a beautiful castle" that we have already started last year.
Among the aims of the projects I'd like to underline the following:
- encourage the learning of foreign languages and European cultures;
- enhance the quality and European dimension of teacher training.
Students realized how important speaking another language apart from their own is and we, the teachers, had the opportunity to share our teaching methods and ideas, we could stay 10 days all together and compare our way of living and at the same time we also agreed with what St. Jeanne of Lestonnac, the founder of the school we had the exchange with, said: "Educate in life and for life"
Here you can watch a video where a Spanish girl makes a welcome speech in Italian: what a surprise for us!
More details will come during the Christmas Holiday.
