Today is the European Day of Languages and at school we celebrate it by starting displaying the postcards from all around Europe within the etwinning project. (More pics will come soon)

It is important to realize how many languages are spoken in Europe and it is important to learn some of them too. Why? To communicate with others of course, to know people from other countries and cultures better, to build strong relationships among people, to create the Union that the founding fathers hoped for, not to fight anymore.
So there are a lot of reasons to celebrate this day!

And remember: Learning another language can make things different!!!!

Penfriend projects 2013-2014

This year the students will write letters to students from Spain, France, Finland and Poland and they are eager to start these new projects.

Writing to a peer is a very involving experience for the students, it motivates them using English in a real context and, at the same time, it allows them to know people from several countries and be aware of the richness of languages and culture that are around us.

Here is a sample letter we created at school.

etwinning 2013-2014: we are here again!

This school year we are involved in several etwinning projects.
The first one is "Let's send postcards to celebrate the European Day of Languages 2013".
The main objectives of the project are :
allow pupils to discover more about Europe, culture, friendship and enjoy communicating;
- learning how to write and send postcards;
- read the postcards in class once they have been received;
- create a poster with all the postcards.

In this document you will find all the schools involved in the project that are more than 40!

The students have already carried out the activities of writing and sending the postcards and now they 

are waiting for postcards from all over Europe.

Make your own slide show at Animoto.
