ABOUT THE PROJECT

Three organizations specializing in teaching foreign languages, from Poland, Slovenia and the Great Britain, diagnosed the common problem of the lack of competences of teachers in teaching English to seniors while using modern technologies and the lack of practical English learning materials for older people. That is why they decided to combine their power, experience and skills under Erasmus+ programme by implementing the project „Real Life Context – English for Seniors”. The aim of the project is to develop innovative educational materials, which will support the competences of seniors in learning English as well as in the field of digital competences.

The most important project goals are:

• To create innovative results of intellectual work dedicated to English language teachers working with seniors

• To raise key competences of seniors in the field of multilingualism (English) and ICT
