- Language learning
- Social inclusion
- Teacher training
- Support Personnel
The Citizenship Language Pack for Migrants in Europe (L-Pack) is a project that aims to promote language learning at a basic level. The project offers a language pack for the learning of the Greek language which includes 12 Units and each Unit presents material which is related to the everyday needs of people living in a foreign country (e.g. Finding a job, Health Issues etc.). More specifically, for each Unit there are video files accessible from the YouTube video platform, pdf documents with available information (on grammar and culture), exercises on the dialogues presented in the videos and also useful instructions on how to use the material for both educators and for students. The project also offers an online platform where students can register and gain access to a "personal space" area where they can record their voice, create a personal learning plan and visit a Forum in order to communicate with other learners and language teachers or get help for the learning materials.
