Culture Adventures across Europe – eTwinning Project

travel-europeAgnieszka Boćwińska, a Polish teacher together with inca hernandez, a Spanish teacher have recently started an eTwinning project called Culture Adventures across Europe and would like to invite other teachers to join them in this venture. The students participating in this project are 14 to 16 year olds.

The main aim of the project is to give the students the opportunity to use English in real life situations, especially while making friends with their peers from the partner countries.  They will work on an assigned topic in which they will have to explore the history, geography and culture of their own country. The presentation will be then exchanged with the foreign partner through email or on TwinSpace. The topics will include school life, Christmas traditions, special holidays and celebrations, folk culture, traditional cooking, historical events and figures, tourist attractions, celebrities and others… By actively raising their cultural awareness, the students will learn to value their own culture and also develop an attitude of interest and tolerance towards other cultures.

If you are interested in joining this project, you can contact either of the teachers through the eTwinning platform. Log on to your Desktop at www.etwinning.net and in FIND ETWINNERS copy and paste one of the names of the teachers shown here and send them an internal email requesting them to join this interesting project.

If you need any support to join this project, don’t hesitate to contact the Maltese National Support service on etwinning@schoolnet.gov.mt or on 25982150/79002150.
