The project PC-G.A.M.E. (Guiding Activities and Methods for Teaching English to Pre-Primary Children) concerns the study of English at an early age, preschool level, aiming at improving the learning process and the educational process itself in the partner institutions; this project also aims at the alignment with the European educational policy regarding the study of a foreign language at an early age.
In order to improve the
efficiency of learning English process, during the first project year we
developed activities that raised the children's motivation and strengthened
both preschoolers' and teachers' linguistic competences. We organized English
lessons using games on the interactive board, games that were designed for the
active learning of this language, which were later on gathered on a DVD, one of
the project's final products. The preschoolers also participated to
videoconferences, during which they had short conversations in English with the
children from partner institutions, on different themes, practicing thus the
knowledge and the vocabulary they previously studied; these videoconferences
helped them have a better understanding of concepts such as intercultural
dialogue, cultural and linguistic diversity, and also underlined the necessity
of establishing a common chanel for communication, in a context in which the
contact between people of different nationalities is frequent. At the same
time, in order to improve learning results, we developed English classroom
activities using interactive group methods, which are presented in this
