SPEED - SPirit of Enterprising in EDucation - stands for innovating, challenging and motivating intercultural partnership. Innovating because of implementing the theme of entrepreneurship in a language project, aiming at promoting European yet not common languages. Intercultural dialogue (yout, school and business culture) accross the borders will be maintained through multilingual communication. Challenging because of the responsability and sense for quality expected from our pupils. Pupils are challenged to coordinate the project, to take an active role in the planning of the exchange project, to come up with ideas of activities, taksks and evaluation criteria. Moreover, they are expected to reach all together and through the whole project the A1 level of the foreign language (European framework). As for the theme of the project, the pupils are challenged not only to examine the entrepreneurship but also to experience the sense of entrepreneurship in everyday life! Motivating because of its unique character for all participants. It will give them the boost to expand their language knowledge and their curiosity to different languages and cultures. SPEED will determine the participants' view of the future, concerning tolerance, importance of a European spirit and flexibility to adapt to constantly changing living and working circumstances.
