To Learn Second Language
Developing new methods to learn a new language
The aim of this European collaboration project is to develop an alternative method for new comers who are low literate or who have never learned to learn in order to give them the opportunity to learn a new language, albeit at a basic level.
Support new comers in learning more about their new home countries
Important aspect is that pleasure is paramount, that the lessons are in line with what the students experience in daily life and that the students also learn more about the culture of their new 'home' country.
Improve the strength of the society
A strong community is a community in which everybody can participate. To establish such a society a certain level of mastering the new language by all people including the new comers is a prerequisite.
Who We ARe
Storytelling Centre believes in the power of storytelling. We are also convinced that in a balanced, culturally diverse society, there should be space for everyone’s story; especially in times of intercultural tensions! In an ever-changing society we see it as a necessity to provide a platform for all those stories, in the theatre and in society, and to encourage people to connect through stories. That is our mission.
