About the project:

In December 2010, 127 families in 5 European countries embarked on the adventure of learning a new language with the learning and teaching model «The Narrative Format» created by Professor Traute Taeschner of the University of Rome ‘La Sapienza’. This research had the goal of finding out how families respond to this new experience and how much children and parents learn together.
