    “European Use of Full-Immersion, Culture, Content, Service approach for Language Learning” - EUFICCS

    Is a project funded by the Key Activity 2 – Languages in the framework of the European Union’s Lifelong Learning Programme and will be implemented for three years (November 2011 – October 2014).

    EUFICCS aims at enhancing the motivation and capacity of language learners to study a foreign language in the country where it is spoken as mother tongue with the use of an innovative common methodology that will be elaborated during the project and applied to the learning of Italian, Spanish and Portuguese  as second languages by students, interns, workers and other young people or adults going to Italy, Spain and Portugal for a study, training or working experience.

    The new methodology is based on 4 dimensions:

    These 4 dimensions are cross-cut by a fifth dimension:  the practice of Reflection, that permits learners to develop an innovative reflective intercultural competence acquired through a structured and guided process of reflection that implies a learner’s conscious (re)elaboration of intercultural experiences,  facilitating his/her full involvement in the host society as an aware social actor of the host reality.

    These five dimensions, as integrated, enriched, and extended by the contributions of the project consortium partners, will permit learners not only to acquire the knowledge of a new language and culture, but also to  decode attitudes, behaviours and attributions of this new language and culture, developing an intercultural reflective competence that will be applicable to future intercultural experiences and allow learners to become active social actors of the European society.
