TI PRESENTO IL MIO PAESE

Expiration to join: Fri 5 Jun at 15

Date of the project: 15 Sep 2019 - 05 Jun 2020

Minimum age: 6

Topic: Linguistic and intercultural workshops in English for primary and middle school students in the province of Pesaro and Urbino.

Description of the Project:

Cultural workshops organised by European volunteers of Vicolocorto association who present their own culture and country to a class of students. The presentations are supported by both online and offline materials that allow students to have a wider experience of the culture and country presented. English is the language used in the workshop: volunteers are not native English speakers, but they generally have an intermediate/advanced level of English.

The meeting is structured in two parts: in the first part, the volunteers present their countries and in the second part the students have room for questions and for free conversation in English with the volunteers. The topic and the countries presented in the meetings are communicated before the meeting itself, so as to give the students time to prepare questions together with the teachers.

 

AIMS OF THE WORKSHOP

  • Development of intercultural skills: the activity’s aim is to promote intercultural exchange thanks to the participation of volunteers from different European countries. The presentations made by the volunteers want, in fact, to stimulate the confrontation between Italian culture and other cultures in order to contribute to promote openness and broadening horizons.
  • Development of language skills: the vehicular language of the activities is English and therefore the communication between students and operators takes place in English, thus contributing to improve students' communication skills.
