In Latvian

Everyplace is a two year European Union funded lifelong learning program project.
The project opens opportunities to acquire knowledge in five languages- Latvian, Czech, Polish, German and Lithuanian for A1 level. But the main task here is not the language learning but more the language in connection with a region in European Union geographically. In courses’ online virtual walk further set  from the main tourist road, but not less interesting places are shown, letting to know Europe from another point of view.

A learner in the course gets informative view about the chosen places in Poland, Czech Republic, Lithuania, Germany and Latvia, which is visually supported by short films. Language knowledge learning is deepened with grammar and vocabulary situation tasks.

It is important while developing learning materials in everyplace project and showing less known places in Europe it is to show the joint and divergence in cross culture communication. In Latvia it is Smiltene.

Town presentations and five language courses can be found here: www.eu-everyplace.eu

The fundamental goal of the project EVERYPLACE is to develop learning materials for the learning of less widely-used and taught languages (LWUTLSs).
The project will result in an online, open and free educational resource.  It will offer flexible learning opportunities, in the learners’ native language (Latvian, Lithuanian, Czech, Polish or German).  This resource will provide opportunities to learn LWUTLs when there are not enough LWUTL teachers and material online.  Moreover it will be one of few European show-cases for EU small and medium towns.

The intercultural dimension of the platform and the multicultural history emerging from the towns' presentations will foster better understanding. 
The long term, ultimate effect of the project, envisaged after the completion of the present project, is the creation of a platform for presentation of less known Europe and for learning the basics of most European LWUTLs.  The project consortium hopes to see a steady expansion of the platform after the end of the project towards general public within the towns and cities of the EU, ultimately drawing to the platform towns representing the LWUTLs  Bulgarian, Estonian, Finnish, Hungarian, Portuguese, Romanian, Slovak, and Slovenian, in additional to 3 major languages.

How will our product aim at satisfying needs, solving problems and provide incentives?
