 Its object is to make pupils conscious of the linguistic
diversity of our society
 Activity steps:
 A big Europe map is painted on the floor
 The children have to recognize the countries and their languages
 All the children are split into “nationalities” groups (British,
German, French, Italian and Portuguese), and care a “flag” sticker
 They learn how to greet and farewell in “their” language
 The children “turn out” to be tourists, and travel to other countries
where they are supposed to greet in the country´s language. They
take their “luggage” with them.
 The final step consists in talking about the other countries
traditions (birthday, Christmas, etc.). All the pupils sing in all the
languages.

“Discover your plurilingual & intercultural
abilities”
 Concieved as plurilingual activity aimed at pupils of 14-15 years
old
 Its object is to make pupils learn other languages by means of the
languages they know
 Activity steps:
 an introductory written comprehension activity, compound of microdialogues in German, French and Italian, which the pupils will have to
attribute to one of the languages by means of comparing frases with
their English and Spanish equivalents
 an oral plurilingual activity, based on the languages the pupils haven´t
studied before (German, French & Italian). They will have to understand
the activity, using their knowledge of Spanish & English
 an intercultural activity, during which the pupils, united in groups, will
assume different invented cultures and will have to behave in terms of
these “cultures” rules. They will have to make them understand, to
negotiate with others and to reach agreements, with respect and
comprehension that other cultures should be always taken into account.
