The linguistic aspect of international youth meetings
The aim of international youth exchanges is that the young people from different countries form strong relationships and communicate with each other. The use of language animation activities helps to reduce initial shyness among young people when first meeting each other and to create better group dynamics. As the organizer of a youth exchange with language animation activities you can find more information about the funding conditions and about method of language animation here.
