The aim of this project is to compare different ways of teaching English
as a foreign language in adult education in all the partner countries
and to try to improve the teaching methodology in each of the
institutions participating in the project. On a first step we will compare
methodology, materials and techniques of teaching and every partner
will make a research in his own institution and country providing
important information about the way English as an international
language is taught to adults. Then we will decide criteria which
successful materials should meet in order to be used in any English
classroom (levels A1-A2) across Europe. On the second step we will
createand select a collection of materials to be used with adults,
structured on the four skills and which will represent the final product.
These materials will focus on English as an international language and
will be used by teachers long after the end of the project. Moreover,
students from every partner country will meet the others and have
activities together. During the international meetingsthere will be
lessons held by foreign teachers and students from all countries will
develop their English skills and motivation in learning it as a means of
The four partner institutions are:
* Centre de Formació d'Adults Josepa Massanès i Dalmau
“Centre de Formació d' Adults Josepa Massanès” is a state adult school
in Tarragona. Our students are mostly from the city or the suburban
regions and towns nearby. It has 11 teachers and about 500 students
from 16 to 80 years old, a vast majority of them being in their early
thirties. The school offers mainly second chance education (students
return to school to get the Secondary School diploma or study to pass
an exam to get into a vocational school). There are other courses
offered to community: Spanish, Catalan, English, ICT, Art and History
and all of them are on basic level and aim to rise students’ interest in
learning. Those who want to go further with their education move to
vocational or language schools. English has traditionally been regarded
as something far way from everyday needs and most students are not
used to move outside their community, despite the important tourist
area nearby. Our school hopes that this project will broaden students’
horizons and the experience will prepare them for European reality.
They will realise English is not a language spoken only by English, but
a useful international tool that enables communication between
European citizens. We hope that our students will develop more open-
minded and tolerant approaches to other cultures and this will
facilitate their access to European labour market by eliminating
*Istituto Tecnico Economico "M.Buonarroti"
“Michelangelo Buonarroti” Institute is a State Technical Secondary
School with courses in Business Studies and High Technologies for
Businesses. The school is in the historical centre of Arezzo, a nice and
lively town not far from Florence, in Tuscany. The seat of the school is
an old Benedictine monastery dating back to the XIII century with a
wonderful cloister. The students who attend the school are aged 14 to
19 and, after five years and a state exam, they get a Diploma in
Accountancy. The school has existed in Arezzo since 1874 and, since
1966 it is also the seat of adult education in town. In the early
afternoon there are courses in Italian language for immigrants with
final exams and certifications, computer studies and English classes.
There are two courses for adults: Social Studies and Accountancy. Both
courses are structured in four years and at the end there is a final State
exam so that the students can get their Diploma. The courses are
attended by students aged between 16 up to 65.
Our school is interested in taking part in this international project and
in cooperating with other European institutions because the number
of students’ mobility will increase, teachers and students will enrich
their experience and develop their linguistic and communication skills.
Moreover, students will get to know the European reality, will become
more tolerant and open-minded with the immigrants who establish in
their region (adopting an outward looking and developing a full
understanding of this phenomenon), they will be offered
opportunities to interact and work together with their counterparts in
partner countries preparing themselves for the European labor market
and for an active citizenship.
*Liceul Tehnologic de Servicii "Sfantul Apostol Andrei"
Liceul Tehnologic de Servicii “Sfantul Apostol Andrei” is a public
vocational school situated in Ploiesti and its catchment area is largely
rural. It has about 63 teachers and 1200 students (20 with special
needs) ranging from the age of 6 to 45 because it includes primary,
secondary, vocational high school (public food services, tourism, body
aesthetics and hygiene, stylist), adult education in evening classes (for
70 adults who decide to return to school to graduate and get a
diploma) and post-secondary medical school (370 students whose
specialism is general nurse, lab technician and pharmacist assistant).
Our school has labs for every specialism.
Our school wishes to be partner in this project, to take part in every
activity and to perform every duty in order to extend the number of
students’ mobility in European countries and to bring foreign students
and teachers here. We want to exchange good practice with European
partners, to improve students’ English skills developing new methods,
to enrich our English curricula after analyzing other educational
systems, to start cooperation with foreign adult education institutions,
to help teachers develop professionally, to disseminate project’s
outcomes to our institution members. This will broaden students’
horizons and show them that if they work hard becoming competitive
and ambitious, they will have the chance to work and travel in foreign
countries and enhance their key competences. They will develop more
open-minded and tolerant approaches to other cultures and we hope
to facilitate students’ access to European labor market by eliminating
linguistic barriers and by giving them the chance to improve their
English skills and experience with European realities.
