Comenius School Project
In September, 2003 a new Comenius School Project began. We are four partners from Poland, Romania, United Kingdom and Spain, being the Spanish school the coordinator of the project.The project is called “INTERESTEEN!” and aims to “discover” the interests of teenagers in these four countries, their similarities and differences
A questionnaire about teenagers’ general interests was arranged. Three hundred students in each school answered 30 questions.The topics dealt with
According to their school timetable the students participating in this project finish school everyday between 2/3 p.m. in U.K., Poland and Spain; and later at the Romanian school cause they have all their lessons in the afternoon.
When enjoying their free time they like practising sports, listening to music and dancing, playing or working with computers and watching TV mainly; but overall they like meeting friends outdoors or at other pals’ houses, the more time they spend with friends , the happier they feel.
Although their timetables are quite different, in Spain they stay outdoors or have their meals later than in the rest, there are more similarities than differences.
This is what we try to “discover” about them, and in this way, maybe we, adults, understand them much better, or maybe not!
The “king”of sportsis football , played by boys and girls. Football teams are supported by lots of teenagers, but mainly boys go to matches. They practise sports regularly at school during their Physical Education’s lessons, and then in the afternoons, at sport centres or parks.
Depending on the weather and the place where they live we find some popular sports, for example, in Czestochowa teens go skiing from time to time, but skiing is not so popular among the other students in U.K., Spain or Romania.
Among British teenagers sports like cricket, hockey, gaelic football or rugby are well known, but not often played in the rest of schools in our project. Romanians and Spanish go swimming more regularly .
Teenagers in every country listen to the same kind of music, the one they can dance with . Some traditional tunes like “banghra” among the Asian community in Oldham (U.K.), “flamenco” in Aljaraque (Spain), are listened as well. In Vaslui traditional “hora” is their favourite, and in Czestochowa “polka” and “oberek” is musicto sing and dance.
They do not spend much money on music and they do not often go to concerts, though a great number of them like dancing at discos or at friends’ parties. They start going to discos when they are between 12 and 14 years old;most of the Spanish kids start a bit later, between 14-16 years old.
Just a few boys and girls play an instrument , the guitar and keyboards being the most usual among them.Only a small number like classical music and listen to it from time to time.
Other types of musicthey listen to: rap,dance,break-beat,heavy,hardcore, techno, garage...
