Title & Reference code
METIKOS -  Informal Language Learning for Immigrants
Greek, Italian, German, Spanish, French
The project aims to promote the use of informal language learning methodologies for the training of immigrants. The aim of the project is to adapt informal   learning methodologies that already exist (language café, tandem, virtual language café) in the specific needs of the immigrants. More specifically, through this project there will be organized:
Learning sessions (based on discussion and dialogue) in public places (café, cultural   spaces etc.) with the aid of a facilitator.
Tandem (R) learning sessions where the immigrant will teach his language to someone who is interested to learn it and, in return, s/he will teach the immigrant the language of his/her country.
Learning sessions through the use of social computing where learning will be based on informal discussion and exchange of experiences between immigrants, facilitators and natural speakers.
At the same time, the project aims to develop 3 internet tools which will aim to  facilitate the language training of the immigrants (virtual language café,   online language community and online repository of existing language resources).
The project is co-financed by the Lifelong Learning Programme of the European Union (Grundvig)
