SUMMARY OF THE PROJECT
The European Language Stage (ESEDI) is a multilateral project which aims to improve teaching and learning foreign languages in Europe through a new didactic material: a multilingual theater play. It will be performed in five languages, in centres in Germany, Spain, France, Bulgaria and Rumania, where they have detected difficulties in languages learning motivation. Each event will be written and performed bilingually according to each country combining in all acts Spanish as the common language with their national language.
Each act will reflect different situations that highlight the linguistic and cultural variety of Europe.

The main objectives are:
- Enhance students motivation towards foreign language learning
- Promotion of language and intercultural skills to compete effectively in the global market
