Do you speak... music?

Research and experience show that language and music support each other and promote motivation through the development of skills and understanding. Listening, perceiving, imitating, and creating are basic skills in both language and music.

  

The goal of the Comenius Project “European Music Portfolio: A Creative Way into Languages” is to integrate musical activities into primary foreign language education. Musical activities and games pre-dispose young learners to engage in enjoyable repetition which can enhance memory for the sounds and structures of new languages. This learning approach can reduce language barriers and help social integration. It can also nurture self-confidence and self-expression and improve intercultural understanding.
