    BROADENING OUR CULTURAL HORIZONS

    This project aims at promoting foreign language learning and motivating students to improve their proficiency in English. Through mobilities and cooperation between the partner countries, it will provide cultural awareness, sense of initiative and social abilities to the participants. Participants will be high school students between 16-19 and they are from disadvantaged areas. 10 students from each country will actively attend all phases of the project such as planning, exchanges, implementation of the activities and dissemination. Communication will be mostly carried out through an online social group to be designed for this project. During the project period, firstly the project will be advertised through local media and websites. There will be language preparation courses in each participating country. During the exchanges, there will be dance and handcraft workshops in Romania and song and game workshops in Turkey. On the last day of the exchanges, there will be presentation of the activities in each country. Also, in each country there will be country's nights at which they will present their countries. This activity will be organized as a contest. The guest country students will present their poems in the host country’s language at this night. During exchanges, the host country will organize cultural visits to introduce their country’s different aspects, so contacts will be formed with local community, and prejudices will be eliminated with mutual respect and understanding. After the exchanges there will be a photo exhibition in each country. A DVD and a daily expression handbook in three languages will be prepared and distributed to the local community and organisations and conferences about the project will be given to local community in each country.
