5. LESSONS TO BE LEARNED

Having a chance to participate in the project at an international level especially when this activity is financed gives a good chance to study languages practically. Integration of several subjects show how important is to know foreign languages if you want to cooperate your activities with people from other countries. Thus, the motivation is enhanced. The acquired skills working in a team using ITC help realizing future activities.
