    HOSPITAL SCHOOLS: A TRIP AROUND MY BED

    The project “HOSPITAL SCHOOLS: A TRIP AROUND MY BED ” is a Multilateral partnership for hospitalized children, aged 3 to 18, with special needs with five Hospital School Centres involved: Madrid (Spain), Ankara (Turkey), Vilnius (Lithuania), Paris (France) and Bari (Italy). English has been the common language for communication among all the participants. The main aim of this Comenius project has been creating motivating English playful teaching materials to enable the hospitalized children to improve their skills in English while also making them sensitive to Europe. All the pedagogical tools such as the “Family Game”, the “City Tours”, or the “School Calendar” and “The ideal City”, are fully in the line with the CEFR, the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. The activities developed with these entertaining teaching materials have developed the pupils’ skills in listening and reading understanding, spoken interaction and production, and writing. Therefore, they have been used at very different levels by Nursery School, Primary School, Secondary and High School pupils from level A1, for beginners, up to C2, for those who were completely fluent in English. Our students have exchanged information with other students from different countries and developed their key competences. Teachers and pupils have enlarged their knowledge about the European reality. Since the sick pupils cannot physically travel hence the title of the projectthe mobilities have been undertaken by the European staff involved in the project. Internet communication has been essential. Other important aspect of this project has been the therapeutic one. The project has been an open window to the world for the hospitalized students. It has been a help for them not only in the academic and cultural aspect but also in the psychological one. So the Comenius project has also played a very important part in their therapy.
