UNIQUE EDUCATIONAL PROJECT

29 Nov

POOLS - 3

The multilingual magazine PELICAN is a unique educational project of PELIKAN School of Languages.

The magazine is the result of the students’ work. Each class writes an article on a selected topic in Czech and a foreign language, so all articles in the magazine are bilingual. Besides students’ articles, contributions from European experts on education and teachers are published too.

The magazine is designed to be used as a tool of language learning and contains articles in English, German, Spanish, French and Russian.

3,000 copies of the magazine are distributed free to local schools, universities, public places and our partners’ institutions across Europe. It is also available online on pelicanmag.wordpress.com.

The video was made in order to promote the magazine and to show the process of creating the magazine.
