As a final event for 2015 LinguCards organised a workshop for Erasmus students and foreign language speakers.
It was a wonderful evening of playing proverb games and undertaking language and artistic challenges.
Together with native speakers from Italy, Greece, France, Georgia, Poland, Cambodia and a strong and determined group of Bulgarians we enjoyed to exchange traditional and modern proverbs from our countries.
Multilingualism is becoming more and more important for the everyday life in Germany. That is why the Integration Network of the District Advisory Committee for Foreigners in Gießen tries to support linguistic diversity by organising a colourful festival of languages: event website. The event aims to stimulate reflection on the importance of diversity in language in a broader sense and through interactive activities.
Of course LinguCards couldn't miss the chance to be present.
Thanks to Lyubomir Pozharliev and Aglaya Kala we provided several of our free cards and triggered people to think about proverbs and their equivalents in other languages.
The fair offered a colourful program with theater, art, music, literature, round tables, courses and lots of helpful informations for foreigners in Germany.
We liked it and will be back for sure!
On Wednesday Vesela Krasteva from the Bulgarian National Television met us for an interview. The reportage was screened in today's show of "Денят започва с култура" (bg: the day starts with culture).
You can find a link to the video here.
Just in time to inform about today's workshops on the street festival "Sofia Disha", the LinguCards founder Amanda Fell and the Bulgarian ambassador of the project Teodora Baeva-Muravska went for an interview at the Bulgarian National Radio. They enjoyed speaking with Tanja Velichkova about the project, it's goals and the upcoming events.
If you understand Bulgarian, you can listen to the recording of the interview here.
On the pictures of the LinguCards workshop from later that day, you can see it was just as much fun as Amanda and Teodora were promising. People every age participated, illustrated their own idioms or donated their favourite idiom in exchange of a LinguCard.
Thanks everybody for coming, sharing and caring!
