Il progetto INCLUDEED

INCLUDEED (Social cohesion and INclusion: DEveloping the EDucational possibilities of the European Multilingual Heritage) is a multilingual project whose main objective is the integration of immigrant and refugee groups in Europe through one of Europe's main assets: its languages. It involves the participation of leading universities in language teaching and with previous experience in creating materials for the use of these socially disadvantaged groups.

The project is divided into two actions (outputs).

In the first action, a multilingual course will be developed for immigrant/refugees groups who already have a basic and instrumental level of the host language (see Xceling project) but who have difficulties in communicating effectively and pragmatically. In other words, these courses (in Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and English) aim to achieve a good sociolinguistic and intercultural integration, beyond the linguistic rudiments they already possess. The courses, virtual and open, will be hosted, on the one hand, in a specific youtube channel and, on the other hand, in a repository located in the project's web-platform, where it will also be possible to consult complementary materials for self-training. Providing also self-evaluation tools, the use of all materials will allow potential users to improve their skills and abilities in general and in their performance and daily interactions in particular.

In the second action, the group of universities will analyse the teaching of languages to immigrants and refugees as a joint task, with each of the partners taking on the development of a theme or aspect in this field. As a result of this work, a joint guide will be produced for people and institutions working in the field of immigration and refugee reception. This publication, which will be open and available through different channels of dissemination and which will address the challenges and solutions in the integration of these groups, can function as a vade mecum in the tasks of different groups: language teaching professionals or volunteers, non-governmental organisations and national and supranational public institutions.

Around these two actions, intensive cross-disciplinary and cross-training activities will be organised between consortium members in their field of specialisation for the exchange of knowledge and skills in language teaching to socially disadvantaged groups, such as immigrants and refugees. The intellectual outputs of the two actions will also be the result of these training and reflection actions.
