Estonian team – winners!

Adding the Estonian and Estonian Sign Language to the Spread the Sign dictionary has just been announced a winner of the award of the European Language Label (ELL).

The ELL is an award encouraging new initiatives in the field of teaching and learning languages, the rewarding of new techniques in language teaching, and spreading the knowledge of languages’ existence, thereby promoting good practice.

Every year, the ELL is awarded to the most innovative language learning project in each country participating in the scheme. By supporting these projects, at a local and national level, the ELL seeks to raise the standards of language teaching across Europe.

The official award ceremony will be held on the 21st of November at a big foreign language teachers`conference in Tartu, where the STS dictionary will also be introduced to a wider range of Estonian public.

Meeting in Spain

During a hot period we had a final project meeting in Madrid, Spain in June 2015. The European Commission paid us a visit and we got an opportunity to show them the massive work it takes to translate between the different languages we use during our meetings – to include us all, both deaf and hearing.

Besides the meetings we also went to the deaf association and got to see a theatre play by deaf actors.
