The first workshop of the project – Language – that happened on February 24, was attended by 22 immigrants from 6 different countries, 10 teachers from Agrupamento de S. Teotónio and 4 members from the Municipality.
Teachers began by representing small theatres simulating quotidian situations (going to the doctor, buying drugs at the pharmacy, buying clothes, etc.) in Portuguese language.
Afterwards the participants were divided into 3 groups according their nationalities. In a classroom the theatres dialogues were worked out and a glossary was distributed with the most important/useful words. This glossary was enriched with words suggested by participants/immigrants.
The meeting ended with a friendly dinner where each brought a specialty of their country to share.
