The project aims are:

  1. To promote L2 learning of migrant mothers with children aged 2-6 and thus their integration in the host society.
  2. To promote knowledge of nursing principles, civic awareness and basic ICT among migrant mothers.
  3. To provide migrant women with a sense of belonging in the host country, as they feel more confident in the interactions and less marginalized
  4. To allow migrant mothers to be more involved in their children’s school life and be part of the school community.
  5. To prepare migrant mothers with preschool age children to interface with public institutions for the needs of their family
  6. To help migrant mothers coming from different countries to share their experience and their adjustment process in the host country thus supporting each other and keeping each other motivated in their efforts to belong to the new culture and society.

The project objectives are:

  1. To design and pilot an innovative methodology and tools aiming at facilitating learning L2 in mothers thanks to the interaction with their children.
  2. To develop a training course suitable to be exploited wherever in Europe to foster L2 learning of migrant women as well as nursing principles, family management, citizen awareness and basic ICT.
  3. To develop new teaching techniques based on the “learning by doing” approach to foster the motivation of migrant women involved in the L2 learning and thus reduce the risk of drop out.
