Our mission

Improving the quality of foreign language teaching and learning processes by means of meaningful telecollaboration among peers: that is the aim of the European project Telecollaboration for Intercultural Language Acquisition (TILA).

The TILA project has been funded by the European Commission within the Lifelong Learning Programme (2013-2015) and continues since then.

Innovation in language teaching

We want to innovate and enrich language teaching programmes at secondary schools and make them more motivating and effective by stimulating telecollaboration for intercultural awareness with peers of other cultures.

Teacher and learner empowerment

We empower language teachers and teacher trainers and contribute to the development of their ICT literacy skills and organisational, pedagogical and intercultural competences for telecollaboration, by promoting experiential learning in telecollaboration tasks development, implementation and evaluation.


By connecting schools, teachers and pupils in different countries through interactive online tools (video communication, virtual worlds, chat, forum, blogs and/or wikis), we provide an engaging environment for learning and practicing foreign language skills.

Promote intercultural understanding

Through telecollaboration in the language classroom, we aim to promote intercultural awareness and understanding in our pupils.
