Talksin Town App, designed as a language learning resource for immigrants, proved to be a great tool to be used for international students as well as participants of short term mobilities. The app can be sucessfully used during language crash courses or to organize city and field games.
We received positive feedback from the participants who claimed their interest in using the app during orientation weeks, staff weeks and all kinds of conferences, seminars, training sessions and integration meetings.
The project is co-funded by the Erasmus+ program of the European Union.
Time to test the Talks in Town App in Poland.

We are happy to receive news from Erasmus+ National Agency that another project submitted by Graceland in cooperation with Eduplius in Lithuania and the University of Vigo in Spain has been accepted for funding. The project aims at providing youth workers with practical tips for using Design Thinking to reduce anxiety and fear in order to integrate migrants and refugees in local communities. It will result in developing a handbook ’What Design Thinking can do for integration of migrants and refugees’ which can be used by both management and entrepreneurship teachers as an example of practical implementation of DT method, and by persons and institutions dealing with migrants which search for new methods for their activity. The project starts in November.
Great news from Aftenskolen Agder in Norway that has been awarded an Erasmus+ grant for a Strategic Partnership project „Inclusive communities through interactive language innovation”. The project aims at achieving a better integration of immigrants through gamifying language learning and involving host communities in this process. The partnership includes language schools and multicultural organisations from Norway, Finland, the Netherlands and Poland. We are very much looking forward to starting the project!
