About Our Project
At first, let us just suppose that learning is like flying by plane:
♦ The country where you are flying from is your mother tongue
♦ The country where you are flying to is your target foreign language
♦ You are a passenger and the pilot of the plane is your teacher
♦ A teacher’s book accompny pilots is treated as co-pilot
♦ Workbooks and other learning materials can be compared with the navigation system
Don’t forget that there are many different planes, that means there are numerous ways of learning:
♦ A huge Boeing 777 flying across the oceans: it flies so long that passengers become friends and often forget where they are flying to. Such big planes are like our schools and universities, where we learn a foreign language with our classmates yearslong
♦ A narrow-body jet airliner: for example, European airlines always use such planes. The distances of the flights are usually short. A lot of us have already used them many times. Such medium sized planes are like small duration language courses
♦ A private plane piloting ourselves : not everybody can pilot a plane. In the case of languages learning, self-learning is not an easy thing. It needs dedication, devotion and discipline to control your own learning process
♦ A private plane having a pilot: however, you can also fly by your own plane sitting on the seat near the pilot. In this case, he will pilot the plane, but he will fly where you want to and as long as much you paid. Such private planes can be compared with private lessons with tutors
Our project is an another plane.
Our project is an airline where every passenger can become a pilot.
♦ We are not always teachers, but we are certainly students
♦ We can have different occupations, but we all are learning foreign languages
♦ We are not always expert in our target language, but we are ready to share every little knowledge with others
♦ We are volunteers and want to help others to learn foreign languages
♦ We are often self-taught, but we are always interested in different learning ways
♦ We want that our project grows and develops.
You can meet here..
Students that want to help other students. We create lessons, write articles, tipps and put together a helpful information for everybody who wants to learn a foreign language.
Native speakers that ready to correct our mistakes, advise and help us to pilot this learning project. By the way, each pilot can become a co-pilot of his own native language!
Any helpers that don’t work with learning language directly. It would be not possible to create this project and it will be not possible to develop it futher without their help.
It is you, our students. It is all people who this project was created for. It is all people who we work for. And, of course, each of you can contribute to the development of the project.
