In what way have you selected students to participate in this Project?

  • SpanishteamssaysthatStudents participating in the Project should be motivated and eager to learn other cultures. They are friendly, nice and sociable. All of them are deeply involved in the project and would take advantage of the opportunity to travel to other countries and meet new people. They are hard-working students, but not necessary the ones with the best academic results or grades.

  • Czechteamsaysthatthey’ve selected the students with excellent results and behavior who wanted to participate. Each teacher recommended some students and then all participating teachers agreed on the final group.

  • Students have been selected according to the courses that they are studying on, which in turn have led to them being offered the opportunity to participate in the project. In this they have been told about the project and then set a task to complete, one that relates to the project theme. This work is in addition to the usual course work, so they are having to prove and earn the right to be considered for the opportunity to participate


  • With four different meetings we have informed every student of our school about the Project. As the second step we have organized a second meeting fort he students that are willing to take part within the Project. They were given a task to prepare for the billboards and the blog of our school.
