The Erasmus+ project E.L.So.M.C.I aims to teach english to people with MCI (Mild Cognitive Impairment) using songs as main tool. Learning a foreign language is, in fact, a good way to stimulate cognitive functions slowing down the cognitive decline. To do that E.L.So.M.C.I partnership will use innovative approaches and methodologies that will help participants to better understand the concepts, the english language rules and to facilitate memorization.
The creation of the workshops methodological guide by the Greek partner, has been followed by a training for trainers that saw the involvement of the entire consortium and that took place in September. In that occasion all partners had the chance to become familiar with the workshops methodology and materials and acquired competencies to implement workshops. Each partner made then the necessary national adaptations.
The E.L.So.M.C.I project consortium is now pleased to announce the launch of workshops addressed to people with M.C.I. Each partner will involved at least 12 people with M.C.I. and the meetings will take place twice a week.
At the moment the workshops have already started in Greece, Spain, Croatia and Slovenia, while they will start in Italy next months.
