Welcome to our project website

Who are we?

We are the teachers from Estonia, Spain, Germany, Belgium, and Denmark, who have joined their forces to seek innovation and greater depth in foreign language learning. We feel confident about our collaboration because among us are those experienced in project work, languages, and technology. Most importantly, we want to work together as a successful transnational team.

Why are we running this project?

Many of us teach English as a lingua franca; quite naturally, we care about our students’ language skills and intercultural awareness. Moreover, European values are important to us, so we need to make sure our students feel that way, too. Our third focus is on the meaningful use of ICT because we know that technology per se will not make anybody achieve higher.

What makes us tick?

  • We love Star Wars as it provides a perfect combination of language, film, and technology ‒ the three pillars of our project.
  • Ambitious enough, we pursue a broader teaching repertoire and greater language learner autonomy.
  • Being curious, creative, and gritty, we are going to build upon our limitations and capitalize upon our strengths, just like Padawan learners and their masters did.
