The project ‘WelComm 2 Explore Europe: Integrated language and cultural learning at early age’ uses regional heritage across Europe and creates multimedia materials for children in the age of 6-12 years old to help them learn more about the history, nature and culture of their new home land.

The project implements a methodology for migrant and bilingual children’s basic language, communication and intercultural skills. This is based on integrating a cultural dimension to language teaching and learning, and thus enabling children to:

  • develop and foster positive attitudes towards other cultures and boost children’s curiosity, empathy, open-mindedness and interest
  • prepare themselves to deal more effectively with various situations in life to include socio-cultural interactions and intercultural conflicts
  • become involved in their society in a spirit of recognition of its uniqueness and tolerance for human and cultural diversity
  • understand more about their own country as part of a shared European heritage and learn to value better their neighbour’s cultures

The project designs a model for language learning through children’s immersion in European culture and offers an innovative and fun way to learn through its main products:

Welcomm2Explore board game - by playing the games children learn words, expressions, local stories and sayings and cultural facts about their city and region.
Comic books - with local cultural stories based on urban stories, local legends, anecdotes, etc. revealing the cultural background and behavior patterns of each country.
Educational experience videos - where children are the main actors and participate in the creation of scenarios with other children.

On the implementation of the project, there are eight partners from different European countries who work together.
