Spain Meeting Sept. 2021

After Lesvos, our next destination was the wonderful district of Castellon de la Plana in Spain. In September, we managed once again, following all the rules imposed by the Covid-19 stuation, to meet and create. Castellon de la Plana is a very nice and peaceful seaside city with an impressive university. We had the opportunity to visit it and implement our meetings there daily, as we did in Lesvos. In this academic environment we were truly inspired and learned a lot from each other . Despite the fact that we know, after two years’ hard work, quite well the content of each partner’s modules, it is always a revelation to discover how experiential activities, implemented in the right way, help us thrive.

Of course, the most important and time consuming part of this journey was the implementation of each program through cyber café, in which we worked on during most of the time and we found out how effective it can be, especially in difficult periods like the one we have gone through during the last two years. 

     Apart from the meetings, we also had the chance to visit many beautiful places in the area , discover  the Spanish spirit and enjoy the hospitality of our Spanish partners ! Next and final meeting in Poland! We look forward to it!

To freshen up the memory to the old ones and to inform the newly interested Train the Trainers of Immigrants- funded by Erasmus+ under Key Action 2, Strategic Partnership in the field of Adult education- is a project that focuses throughout its two active years on the development and implementation of a training methodology on non-formal learning of languages for immigrants.
During the project’s life cycle there will be developed a series of non-formal learning techniques such as cybercafé, language tandems, and methodologies about dealing with traumatic situations, raise awareness on cultural differences, different socioeconomic environment as well as cultural mediation of immigrants.
Two trainings will be implemented too– a first one in Greece and an advanced one later in Spain.
The partnership of this project is composed by the coordinator of the project Fundacja Ad Meritum (Poland), Jaume I University Business Foundation (Spain), Active Citizens Association (Greece), Second Chance School of Mytilene (Greece).
