Erasmus+ Young Adults 17-24 Years Old

The extension of the Erasmus+ mobility funding to groups of Young Learners (12 to 16) and Young Adults (17 to 20) from schools all across Europe for the 2021 to 2027 programme has inspired Future Learning to develop our well-established 21st Century projects for young learners to meet the programme objectives.

Students, who travel with their teachers as group leaders, are invited to participate in a series of one-week projects based on topics such as Digital European Citizenship, Environment and Sustainability, Identity and Culture or Stories and Drama; alongside other European students throughout the school year (see page X for details). We recommend that Young Learners (aged 12-16) undertaking these projects have a minimum level of A2 while Young Adults (aged 17-20) should have a minimum level of B1.

The projects are technology-enhanced and use active and authentic learning activities. These projects enable our students to explore the places which they are visiting and articulate the aspects that most interest them. It is very important to Future Learning that students feel that they have travelled and encountered a different culture while here in Ireland, sharing it with their new European classmates. All our projects are about students engaging with the world around them and are not the sort of classes that they could just as easily do at home. The projects are inspired by what they observe in the classroom as well as out on their tours and where they are staying.

Through ‘learning by doing’ these projects develop language skills and promote cultural awareness while enhancing teamwork, collaborative problem solving and the use of technology amongst all the European participants.

I think the way that Future Learning teaches using new technologies, it makes their lessons more interactive and full of activities so the students have fun while learning English. I think it would be a great idea for people to come to Future Learning, it’s a different experience to how you learn English in school. It’s not just your teacher explaining grammar to you, it’s delivered through activities such as cooking and music, so you are learning in a fun and natural way. Future Learning is interactive, fun and friendly.

In Ireland, I find people speak more slowly, they let me understand what they are saying. I wanted to improve my English and to learn more about the languages, I also thought I could evolve my speaking skills. I’ve met fantastic people in my host family, the father and brother are great, and the mother and the sister are so gentle and polite. I use English when I talk to my host family, when I go out shopping and I also have friends from all over the world whom I talk to in English too. Future Future is innovative, interactive and… orange! 🧡 I’d recommend Future Learning to anyone who is looking to improve their English skills as Future Learning is the way to do it.

Future Learning is different from other schools because of the coexistence of personal life and input to a society path, which includes the creation of a students own web profile which we cultivate once the programme is completed. The opportunity the students have to live this experience, either in a college setting or with a host family, and the activities which can be curricular and extracurricular based around Irish culture is excellent. There is a great relationship between the foreign agencies and the Future Learning staff. Future Learning is supportive, for both students and staff, instrumentative in the information they provide the students, and allowing freedom of students’ creativity with their input.
