Repository of innovations in teaching host country language to migrants and refugees

The Repository aims at bringing ideas and practices in teaching host countries’ language to migrants and refugees and to stimulate new thinking and experimentation.
The Repository expanded the partners' knowledge on the core subject and at the same time it provided a unique tool available to all those who are researching and working in the field, within the wider educational community, across Europe.    
The Repository offers ideas for the selection of the Lingua+ practices.

Practices on social inclusion - O2

The Study contributed to provide insights on the relevance of embedding the teaching of the host country language into approaches and practices that stimulate intercultural dynamics, socio-cultural approaches and empathy.

The Study served a three-fold purpose:  a) expanding the partners’ knowledge on the subject;
b) provide practical examples that can be adapted to language teaching (e.g.: drama and multi-art forms used as practices for social inclusion can be adapted to language learning);
c) providing food for thought on the distinctive focus of Lingua+ which is combining language teaching with a special emphasis on social inclusion practices.

The Study has the form of a multimedia document. It will be an OER with Creative Commons (CC) license, for all those with an interest in such a needed area of intervention across Europe and beyond.  

Lingua+ Handbook for language teachers, trainers, volunteers

The Handbook contains theoretical clues and analysis of adult language learning for migrants and refugees (challenges and needs). It delineates  the Lingua+ methodological approaches and will provide  an in-depth introduction to the practices, lesson plan templates and assessment tools.
The Handbook is an Open Educational Resource, under Creative Commons (CC) license and is freely available on the platform here (ENG) (CZE) (ISL) (GRE)

Lingua+ Learning Paths Multimedia presentation

A vibrant multimedia tool that contains the  Lingua+ practices grouped into Learning Paths.
While in Output 3, the practices were only listed, in Output 4 they are described in detail, accompanied by audio and video files, completed with recommended reading and links.  

Output 4 is also an Open Educational Resource, made available on the platform. Find it here (ENG), (CZE), (ISL) (GRE)

Lingua+ Teacher Training Course Guide and MOOC

The Guide provides the basis of the programme that enables teachers with know-how on Lingua+ methods and practices through F2F training. This is completed by a MOOC for online training through the EPALE portal of the Commission.

Output 5 builds upon Output 3 and 4. The output has a great potential for transferability as it is used for new regular training offers within the partner institutions and is included as Lingua+ Course in the School Education Gateway of the Commission. The Course is also offered to NGOs, centres, associations dealing with teaching host country language to migrants and refugees.The Lingua+ MOOC, being an online course, has the potential of reaching an even larger number of users.

The Guide is uploaded on the project platform as an Open Educational Resource of  Lingua+,  under Creative Commons (CC) license, for the benefit of trainers, teachers, volunteers, language experts, policy makers in Europe and beyond.   

Web 2.0 Platform

This Platform includes the project Open Educational Resouces and the link to the EPALE Portal of the European Commission where you can find the Lingua+ MOOC.

Mobile App

The mobile app facilitates the widest possible dissemination of project results and contributes to the establishment of a vivid community of users that continue to use and extend the project results beyond the funding period.

In particular the mobile app is designed in order to provide functionality to:

1. Create and manage elements of collection of practices.
2. A database of words, phonemes, culture-specific information, symbols, questions/answers.   
3. Facilities to create lesson plans based on a selection of practices that a user wants to use for a specific purpose or in a specific context.

The overall design of the mobile app pays special emphasis on its educational use linking to learning subjects such as foreign language learning, multicultural awareness, cultures connected to languages, cohesion and empathy games, listening and togetherness dimension.
