INTERCOM: Un programme d'apprentissage pour la promotion de l'intercomprehension en Europe
INTERCOM develops a methodology of Intercomprehension which is founded on the use of strategies that rely on non-linguistic aspects of receptive competence. In this project, several interactive activities, which are based on this particular methodology, will be developed for online & receptive learning of the following four languages:
- a Germanic language, German,
- a Roman language, Portuguese,
- a Slavic language, Bulgarian,
The activities available are designed for young adults and adults (in particular students) who have already learned a foreign language (French or English). They range from beginner level to A2 level and can be used in educational institutions (school, university, adult and community education) or for self-directed learning.
The objective of the INTERCOM project is not only to foster receptive acquisition of particular languages but also to develop a solid general competence of Intercomprehension and hence to promote plurlingualism in Europe.
INTERCOM is founded on theoretical and practical insights and results of previous projects and research in the field of Intercomprehension.
By situating Intercomprehension beyond the language families and stressing the non-linguistic aspects, the project brings a new dimension to the notion of Intercomprehension and leads the way to the implementation of corresponding learning activities.
