The GENERAL AIM of BRIDGE-IT project is to create formal and informal learning opportunities to bridge ICC problems in this context.

Specific objectives
Create face-to-face and online training courses, for both relational parties involved in ‘first-impact’ bureaucratic-institutional interactions: ACMs (public officials, police and border officers, social workers etc. dealing with newly arrived migrants) and AMs (e.g. refugees, migrants to be regularised, asylum seekers), on the basis of  a collection of real-life communication materials (video recordings, written texts, forms, etc.) from a range of bureaucratic-institutional contexts from different countries (EU and candidate).

The project will provide a training concept for the fight against racism and xenophobia, a handbook, training events, comparative studies and analyses.

In European societies, increasingly reshaped by migration, the fight against racism and xenophobia is a key challenge for democracy and civil life. Despite anti-discrimination legislation that is in force in EU Member States, there is still a fundamental problem in identifying the different forms of racism and xenophobia. These may consist of violent actions (e.g. physical attacks) against people or of hate speech – ‘racial’ and xenophobic discourses “which spread, incite, promote or justify racial hatred, xenophobia, anti-Semitism or other forms of hatred based on intolerance, including: intolerance expressed by aggressive nationalism and ethnocentrism, discrimination and hostility against minorities, migrants and people of immigrant origin”

Language Voices

As the growing number of migrants in Europe struggle with limited financial resources, this project aims to improve and facilitate their access to second language studies through participation in Language Voices language cafés, which are informal meetings based on volunteering but also systematically organised. The migrants gain access to social, informal environments of the resident country while integrating into a community of learners and tutors, which is often a key success factor in establishing a quality life in a new country.

The project will provide:

1) a preparatory training and handbook so that the multilingual Language Voices concept can easily and successfully be replicated throughout the EU or anywhere else in the world;

2) a comprehensive material bank with language learning and cultural material and resources and a possibility for online communication and language exchange;

3) a mobile application to find language exchange events available in the partner countries;

LANGO is a free web portal and phone app working together to teach languages to refugees and migrants.  Learn English, Dutch, French, Greek, or Turkish.

The LANGO phone app will include subjects that are necessary for linguistic and cultural adaptation in a new country. Illustrated vocabulary to facilitate recognition. Audio files for pronunciation nuances.  Animated audio-visual content to engage users in innovative ways. The topics will involve country-specific concepts to assist integration in each of the partner countries.
