In order to learn more about the situation concerning these questions in the different geographical, political, economic and social contexts, the members of the project “Enhancing language education in cross-border vocational education” will soon start a survey to get in touch with the different stakeholders in the fields of education, economy and politics. Their answers will help to understand the specific needs in the different (border) regions for plurilingual and intercultural education and to develop, in a next step, tailor-made concepts and pedagogical materials.
Based on their experience in their respective fields and the intense exchange during the last months, the experts from Germany, Luxembourg, Poland, Lithuania, France, Romania and Denmark are convinced that solutions to improve plurilingual and intercultural education in cross-border vocational training are possible.
