    The language of art

    The idea of the project "The Language of Art" was to reveal and understand our cultural values, cultural similarities and differences. The project involved 8-15 year-old pupils from 5 schools each from different country. The project's main objectives - to deepen English language and IT skills, learn to communicate and collaborate in an international team and gain self-confidence in spite of ethnic differences. Students exchanged the information collected about their country's cultural heritage; they also organized an exhibition of national costumes presented in the photos and drawings. Participants made the e-book, leaflets, dictionary presenting ethnic traditions, customs and traditional dishes and costumes. The project intertwined traditions, festivals, history, dance, music of the particular country, foreign languages and citizenship. The participants created a website, they communicated using MSN, social networks and e-mail. Each partner school had a place in their schools to display the material related to the project. During the visits there were attended the lessons and organized activities introducing the culture and traditions. Also, teachers shared their experience by open lessons and workshops. The feedback was given about all the meetings and activities in other countries in the schools and the website artlang.eu. Students of each partner school with their teachers’ help prepared the folk fairy tale in their mother tongue. The plays include the native land’s traditions, traditional songs and dances presented sometimes in a modern version. The participants issued a single DVD, titrated in English, published the e-book on the customs and traditions, and a glossary in English and partners native languages. The project developed students’ competences to communicate in their mother tongue, in foreign languages, their digital literacy and cultural awareness.
