Alternative Ways to Learn a Second Language

Many European countries have experienced an influx of refugees in recent years. Learning their new language is essential for their integration. But what if this is too big a challenge? During our language lessons for people with low language learning skills, we saw the need for an alternative method.

What if learning is difficult?

Although Belgium, Germany, France and the Netherlands have good formal methods to learn the second language, there is a group of newcomers for whom this is too hard. For example, functionally illiterate people or people who have never learned to learn.

The aim of this 2-year European cooperation project is therefore to develop an alternative method to give them the opportunity to learn a new language so that they can still actively participate in society.
