Contribution to the project:

I will contribute my experience and knowledge in the field of teaching a foreign language (English) both in face-to-face and in virtual environments to adults and secondary and post secondary school students.

The project will also benefit from my knowledge on intercultural learning and non-formal / informal learning, gained during my work with adult language learners and language mentors in the LITERALIA project.
