    New Strategies for Promoting Foreign Language Learning in Disadvantaged Areas

    The main aims of this Learning Partnership were to exchange the best experience of promoting foreign language learning and practice of different European institutions, to enhance availability of educational opportunities and conditions for geographically, economically and socially disadvantaged learners by stimulating and adopting innovative initiatives. The language learning was organized on the basis of exchanging cultural knowledge and understanding unique ways of life in various European regions. Four thematic foreign language teaching and learning modules “My Country-Region-Town”, “Traditions and Traditional Festivals”, “Traditional Food” and “Typical and Traditional Jobs” have been implemented and served as the medium of English as a foreign language learning for adults in the participating institutions in Lithuania, Latvia, Italy, Turkey and Spanish language learning for institution from Spain. The main results of the modules are learners’ Power Point presentations. Final products of the Partnership are a webpage and a book containing the most effective and useful approaches as well as material extracted from our learners’ presentations. The enclosed texts will serve as teaching resources for future language courses.
