Title of the Project
Cool School – learning can be fun
Brief description
In the project “Cool School - learning can be fun” we integrated the common lessons between two groups from different countries into normal school life. The main objectives were to enjoy cooperation among students from three partner schools, to bring own students‘ ideas and share them with new friends, to find out some information about life, school life and culture in European countries, to compare similarities and differences. Czech students have learned English as their first foreign language. They practiced language skills and improved the ability to communicate in English and ICT skills. Some topics were related to school curriculum. The final work is a collection of funny activities used during our project and some new topics.
