PLEASE : Parental support for learning English
Start date: 01 Sep 2014, End date: 31 Aug 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

PLEASE Parental Learning with EASE but also to EASE children’s aquisition of English as a foreign language is the ERASMUS+ Strategic Partnership Project which gathered four partners from Poland,Greece, Spain and Portugal around the subject of intergenerational language education. The project is intergenerational in its nature but also inter-sectoral as parters represent a public primary school, a private language school, two NGO organisations of the third-age generation. The project is aimed at two target groups: families with fewer opportunities that cannot afford additional private education of English in order to offer their children a helping hand with the English homework and practice thus reinforcing the basic language instruction offered by the state schools. The other target group is teachers of English at primary level who will be equipped with tools they will be able to use to continue spreading the results of the project on a langer scale in the future. Both target groups will be show how to use easily available OER for the benefit of children, but also parents/grandparents. Partners and teachers participating in the project will work out and deliver in form of seminars, the theoretical aspects of family education such as scope of parental control, the safe-for-children Internet, OER online. Partners will collect examples of OER available online, particularly the European Shared Treasure and the eTwinning platforms, YouTube and similar. Best practices will be collected in form of an e-book ”100 Ideas for Happy English” which will be disseminated as the project main product. As a result of the project, parents/grandparents/children will learn from each other reinforcing their language and ICT basic skills. The highlight event of the project - the SUMMER CAMP OF ENGLISH - based on the principles of experiential learning - will be organised by partner organisations for the target families in each of the partner countries, with the participation of both home and incoming teachers. This pilot-course will constitute experimental basis for the IST course curriculum which will be another product of the project and will secure long-term benefits of the Strategic Partnership.
