Hello everyone!
we want to say that we think there is a mistake in calculating our last score, because we answered all the questions correctly and we got 19 points instead of 20.
Can someone correct our score please? Thank you very much!!!

Final planning

Hi again.

I've received some answers to my proposal for the final planning of this project. Some countries have problems of having more than one session a month, others don't have classes, others finish earlier and others have exams. After a search of possibilities here is my proposal, which I hope will be fine for everybody:

Next session: March 3rd (Portugal is asking the questions)
Following sessions: March 24th, April 14th, May 19th (2 countries will ask the questions), June 9th.

I think it will be possible for the countries, on May 19th, to ask the questions and to receive all the answers as we are almost professionals with our videoconferences.

I still don't know what Poland, Italy, England and Lithuania think about it but I hope you agree. If Spain cannot join us on one of the March sessions, it will be ok as you haven't missed a session so far. You just have to let us know you won't be present.

See you soon.

Hi everybody!

As you know, this was meant to be a 2-year-project, as at start we were 14 partners. However, as we are 11 schools now, I think that we could plan our sessions in order to get all the countries asking the questions till June.

To do that we need to have more than one session a month. My suggestion is this:

We'll have a session on March 3rd (this one is already booked), another session on March 24th; in April, due to Easter holidays we could have a session on the 14th; in May we need two more sessions, the first one on the 5th and the second one on the 26th; the final session would be on the 16th June.

I would like you to send me a mail to confirm the dates.


March session - Portugal

Here is the link to our videoconference on the 3rd March at 10.30 (London time).

See you then.
