EuroLib Partnership meeting in Czech Republic
Brno - CZ 22-25 October 2010

The 11 and 12 September, the EuroLib Czech partner,
Language School Pelikan, held the first piloting of the EuroLib project. The piloting took place in the language school classrooms and counted with the participation of thirteen children aged seven to eleven.

The piloting was very successful both for the children and their parents. Children, at first discussing the latest PC games, changed their mind soon just after opening the first few books…. And what´s more, the partners´ languages were popular, too. Everybody started to want to learn at least one or two.

Parents were given informative leaflets about the project and shown the activities outcomes: drawing, posters and the certificate of participation.
