Description

This is a joint ongoing project between the schools of the city of Hämeenlinna with the supervision of the city’s administration and school board. The aim is to broaden the selection of foreign languages offered and studied in all lower and upper level comprehensive schools in the area. The aim has been reached by active and strategic policy and decision-making throughout the community e.g. by designing a language path that can be followed from pre-primary school to secondary education. The project has involved cooperation between administration, teachers, pupils, pupils’ parents, local entrepreneurs and other local and national interest groups.
