Language for freedom
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The place where the project is developed is an adult education center in the community of Madrid, located within the prison of Soto del Real. Our students are from different countries, with different languages of origin, and they show great interest in learning English and Spanish. Learning languages is the most valuable tool for reintegration. Two members of the center are participating in the project. They are English teachers in starter, elementary and intermediate levels. Being a project whose main objective is to introduce innovative methodologies and to improve language learning, all teachers who teach languages can take part in the project. Ongoing activities include training courses in English schools specializing in innovative methodologies located in Malta and UK, and job shadowing trips, visits to schools located in Norway ANA PRISON and United Kingdom CROYDON HIGH SCHOOL with innovative methodology in the teaching of English and languages, with the intention of transferring the experiences observed in our school. The methodology will be based on the process of action-research. Research will be conducted in both the training course and professional stay. The result of this research will be implemented at our institution, through a process of continuous feedback throughout the project duration. The main impact of the project is that students in our school can learn English effectively in environments which are innovative, put in practice attractive methodologies and thus have a tool to enhance their European identity. In the long term is to improve the quality of education in our center through teacher training, a change in language teaching methodology and network of contacts with European centers for future collaborations.
