The event took place in Palermo at Liceo Scientifico Statale S. Cannizzaro where teachers and students from other local schools were also welcomed: one class from Liceo Linguistico Regina Margherita di Palermo and two classes from Istituto Professionale Pietro Piazza.
During the morning, the aim of the project was presented, and even project results such as the synthesis report on the current situation in partner countries, the project website and social media, the new vocabulary handbook, the new vocabulary training courses, and the students video stories.
Some copies of the Italian handbook were given to teachers that were very interested on the topic and the Italian video stories were projected on a big screen.
At the end of the event, the four students that participated at the Learning, Teaching and Training Activity in Porto had the pleasure to explain their experience to other students.
