Yell : Young Europeans Love Languages
"Young Europeans Love Languages" is a network of European partners whose aim is to promote language learning as a key skill of lifelong learning.
We believe that fun, attractive, and unconventional forms of language learning should be incorporated not only in formal education but also in other non-formal/informal contexts and leisure activities.
Our network plans to identify a number of tools to raise awareness and to demonstrate the importance of language learning which will help to increase the effectiveness of language teaching.
Our aims are:
- to find previous projects where innovative and useful language tools have been developed but not sustained and, where possible, revive and adapt them for use with young people in non-formal and informal environments
- to make the process of learning meaningful and fun e.g. language learning as an aspect of sport, social and cultural activities
- to create a toolbox containing language learning tools which have been adapted to be integrated in other social, cultural and sporting activities for young people.
