"The European Children’s Travelling Language Library, is a European Union funded project. It is targeted at motivating children that have recently started to learn a foreign language to:
- Exposure them to the rich heritage of European languages and cultures
- Be motivated to learn languages
- Build a love of reading as the best form of autonomous lifelong learning
- Reinforce emerging literacy.
(...) illustrated children's books in six European languages will travel from school to school across Europe. Each school has the library for a period and has to carry out a number of educational and collaborative activities (...) The target group for the project is students in their first year of learning a foreign language (...) Initially the libraries will be available in Czech Republic, Finland, Italy, Spain, Turkey and the UK and later in other countries".
