Already teen

We want our students to gather intercultural experience and communicative abilities as well as ICT skills. Our idea is to do a teen magazine or newspaper where the pupils post articles about their favourite topics, like youth culture, information about their country and town, about their school and daily life, but also perhaps translate big news into English and share what is important to them.

Quality Label of the Month
What is the Quality Label?

Tourism and trade in Europe : let's go sustainable

The students, through this project, can discover the other modes of consumption, the other forms of communication between consumers and actors of a business and a tourism more responsible towards the ecological balances of our planet and more human in the approach of the relations individual and intercultural. The pupils of the partner European schools can so form their judgment and become consumer citizens ecologically responsible.
