Develop Training Material on Cookery and Cultural Awareness Supporting Basic Skills – IO1

Summary

Starting from the basic idea of the LLCC project to combine language learning with cooking and intercultural dialogue, we have created in IO1 new training materials with the aim to rethink the language learning process. Divided into four modules with different topics covering various aspects of food and related traditions, the goal is to provide material that guarantee innovative and inspiring lessons helping learners from different cultural backgrounds to learn better the language and get to know the food traditions of their new country. The material was developed in all our partner languages (Romanian, German, English, Greek, Spanish, Lithuanian) using blended-learning methods with exercises and activities tailored for online courses and for face-to-face sessions.

In addition to interactive activities, we have also created for each of our four modules short and informative introductory videos that give participants an overview about the main content of each module.
