There are 6000 languages spoken in the world. And behind each and every one of them lies a rich and diverse culture. On the occasion of the European Day of Languages and getting started with our new Comenius project “A Rainbow Over Europe: Culture, Education, Tradition, Art, History” we organised an event in our school to show other students and teachers how important languages are and what fun can be had learning them.
Each class created a poster about country participating in this project: Romania, Estonia, Turkey, Italy, Spain, Germany, Poland, and Lithuania. Some students were singing songs in chosen country’s language, some were dancing, other had prepared different country’s national dish and served round: Romanian dessert – pastries with cottage cheese filling, Spanish – Pisto (Tomato and vegetable mix), Estonian – Mugikapsas (pork with sauerkraut and boiled potatoes), Italian – pizza…
Getting involved in this project we have a good apportunity to learn more about foreign languages, culture, traditions and to encourage students to learn new languages.
