DIGI-LINGO is an initiative that aims to support the European Union’s stated goal of enabling multilingualism and ensuring that every person speaks at least two foreign languages. The project aims to achieve that by exploring the capabilities of digital environments to unlock the potential of language learning. More specifically, its objectives include developing new teaching guidelines for digital language learning, designing easily accessible methods for virtual language exchange, and ensuring the sustainability of the model at regional levels. At present, the project involves partners from Denmark, Norway, Belgium and The Basque Country and is focused on upper-secondary students, but in time, it intends to become applicable across educational levels and countries.
