Solution description

The solution we suggest consists of five digital activities divided into three separated phases-steps. The linguistic observation activities combine play with the use of technology.

Phase 1: 

Activity 1: Video display of the song “Chansons des moyens de transport” in order for the children to be introduced to the main theme of the activity along with linguistic observation of the song in five different languages; French, Greek, English, Italian and Russian.

Phase 2: 

Activity 1: This will be a matching activity where the students try to match images to words written in Serbian.

Activity 2: During this activity, each student will be challenged to match the one half of each given word with its other half. The words that will be given are in Greek, English, Italian, Russian and French.

Phase 3: 

Activity 1: This activity includes a hangman game with words chosen from a multilingual board. The words will be in English, French or Italian. This activity’s target is to improve students’ observation of similarities and differences among the various forms that words of identical meaning written in the Latin alphabet can have

Activity 2: This will be a matching activity where each student has to match boxes. Inside the boxes will be images and words of vocal content. Languages used in this activity are; Italian, French, German, Slovenian, Dutch and Portuguese.

Solution target group

The audience that we want to address are third Grade children.

Solution impact

Through multilingual activities we can achieve lingual awareness and improve the way students understand the relation between different languages and cultures. Multilingualism can have a strong positive effect in the development of cultural bonds and can also enhance perception of related origins among different cultures.
