Digital Language Teaching: Insights from the DIGI-LINGO Project


From 13 to 15 March, the DIGI-LINGO partner group held its second in-person meeting in San Sebastian which was graciously hosted by one of the partners in the Basque Country, Kristau Eskola.

Over the course of the two-day program, the partner group delved into the outcome of the recently concluded Project Result 1. The participants discussed the analytical framework and identified good practices in digital language teaching and virtual exchange, which will soon be published. Furthermore, the partners directed their attention towards the next project result that they will be working on during the second year of the project. Their objective in this phase is to create concrete and practical guidelines for digital teaching methods and techniques to facilitate virtual language teaching and exchange.

During the first day, the partner group also toured the Mary Ward School which stands out for its focus on language education. The school promotes multilingualism and offers courses in not only Basque and Spanish, but also German and English. As part of this initiative, the school organizes exchange programs with seven destinations in Germany and England. More information about it can be found on the school's website.

On the second day, the partner group paid a visit to Nazaret Fundazioa School, an educational institution that provides vocational training to both young adults and adults. The school has been at the forefront of utilizing information technology to enhance the students' learning experience and to equip them with the skills and knowledge necessary for achieving the highest level of employability. More information about it can be found here.
