Welcome to the website of the Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership Project entitled:
EngLife: Strengthening Teachers' Digital Readiness for a Lifetime English Language Education.

Overall objective

The Project aims to strengthen schools in preparing students to effectively communicate in English in the English-dominated professional and cultural space they will face in adulthood.

Overall objective No 1

We plan to increase the capacity of teachers teaching English in secondary education to use education technology inside and outside of the classroom.


Overall objective No 2

We plan to produce, test and implement a new teaching and learning methodology, contributing to the knowledge development on innovative methods in language teaching & learning in a digital era.


Overall objective No 3

We plan to multiply skill-learning through the train-the-trainer EngLife Methodology Workshop to apply the methodology in diverse international and intercultural settings outside of the project thus contributing to the professional development of teachers and the English language pedagogy.


The SMART goal of the project

During the course of this project, we aim to increase the professional capacity of 18 English language teachers to teach Juniors (14-17) in secondary education with the use of education technology and train these teachers to train other teachers to implement a comprehensive, innovative approach to language teaching, the EngLife Methodology.

Project EngLife

Strengthening Teachers' Digital Readiness for a Lifetime English Language Education

Project number: 2020-1-PL01-KA226-SCH-095824.
Project Financing: Erasmus+ Strategic Partnerships in Higher Education, total grant: 242 687 EUR.
Project Duration: June 30, 2021 - June 30, 2023

The Goal

The goal of the Project is to increase the professional capacity of 18 English language teachers to teach Juniors (14-17) in secondary education with the use of education technology and train these teachers to train other teachers to implement a comprehensive, innovative approach to language teaching, the EngLife Methodology.

The Rationale for the Consortium

The COVID-19 pandemia has had a significant impact on the regular delivery of education. While it demonstrated how quickly online technological solutions can aid in times of crises, it also exposed the challenges teachers experience when online delivery is necessary.

At the same time, language learning pedagogy, due its communicative nature of instruction, has not exploited technology as effectively as pedagogy in other disciplines.

English language learning in secondary education is still largely oriented towards grammar and technical knowledge and students emerging from secondary education underachieve in real English communication.

This contrasts with the fact that communicative knowledge of English in today?s globalised environment is necessary for personal and professional growth. Moreover, for most internet users who are not native English speakers, contact with English is unavoidable also in recreational online activities.

The Consortium Partners performed an appropriate survey on teachers in their networks, which provided a Needs Analysis for the project.

We identified a need to equip English language teachers in secondary education with digital skills allowing them to work effectively in their classrooms of today.

EngLife Methodology Workshop

After producing an advanced draft of the Englife Methodology and before the semester-long testing phase 18 teachers from participating schools in the Project, who want to learn the new method and explore how to actually translate the existing courses and programmes in teaching English into the Englife approach will participate in EngLife Methodology Workshop.

The workshop programme will take two main factors into consideration - the experience of the participants as teaching practitioners and their aptitude to use digital resources as a systemic solution to teaching and learning.

The participants will not only internalise the Englife approach, but also will collectively, collaboratively inquire how the methodology can be harnessed to enhance the way others teach teens the English language in a technologically-packed world (train-the-trainer element).

It will help the participants to construct the backbone of the Online Course to be produced in the next project stage.

The Multiplier Events

Planned seven EngLife Launch Events will serve to propagate the teachers digital toolbox developed during the project and launch the complete EngLife methodology to those teachers of English at secondary schools in the project partner country who have not participated in the project or the EngLife Methodology Workshop.

It will take a form of a teachers-led workshop on EngLife methodology and other tools developed during the project.

Each Project Partner will organise such ME at its premisses. The goal is to encourage institutions and teachers not affiliated with the project to test the solutions in their own environments.

The remaining two multiplier events include a seminar to share the EngLife methodology and its impact on secondary education with the secondary and higher education stakeholders at the EU level and a final conference.

The Intellectual Outputs

The Intellectual Outputs include: an Analysis on the English Language Acquisition Potential among Teens in a Digital Era; a Seminar Module on "Mapping language teaching and learning in highly volatile times"; 3) An Assessment Tool of "Self-assessment tool for teachers"; Online database of digital resources for teaching English;

A Methodological Framework on Integrated English Learning for Digital Native Junior Students; Course Materials for EngLife Methodology Workshop; Online course "EngLife: Teaching English for a Lifetime' with train-the-trainer material - design and development; and Policy recommendations on the use of technology in English language teaching.

The Results

This strategic partnership aims to change in the approach to teaching in a modern English language classroom thanks to EngLife: an innovative method of expanding the learning beyond the school physical and virtual space with the use of technology.

Atlantic Language

Atlantic Language School Logotype - EngLife

Atlantic Language is a premium English language school, located in Ireland with centres in Galway and Dublin, which has been providing English language courses for international students for 25 years. Atlantic Language is recognised by Eaquals as a provider of excellence in language education, ACELS, a service of Quality and Qualifications Ireland, for English Language Teaching (ELT) and is a member of Quality English, ALTO, and MEI and a recognised Erasmus+ course provider associated with Leargas.

In recent years, Atlantic Language has developed its offering of specialised English language courses for Higher Education Academics and for Administrators involved in internationalisation programmes on university campuses, primarily through the Erasmus+ Programme with programmes offered on School Education Gateway. Atlantic's Academic Team have designed curricula in response to the needs identified by HEIs throughout Europe who teach, work or research through the medium of English. Current programmes offered include Academic Writing and Presentation Skills, CLIL for Educators, English for Professional Communication, English for the Educational Workplace, Language Teacher Refresher Course, Public Speaking for Academics and Intensive General English. Atlantic Language collaborates with several universities in providing Academic Training courses including Szent István University, University of South Bohemia, Universidad de Cordoba, Salzburg University and VIVES.

Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) has become the umbrella term describing both learning a subject such as physics or geography through the medium of a foreign language (such as English) and improving that language by studying a content-based subject. In the course of learning the method at Atlantic Language, participants develop and improve their understanding, expertise and skills related to CLIL in their pedagogical context. This raises a range of important issues among students, teachers and lecturers for whom English is an additional language. CLIL methodology workshops and seminars at Atlantic Language provide the necessary tools that higher education lecturers need in order to guide understanding and support the learning of their students. Development of competences in this area help educators to find solutions in motivating learners, adapting texts, selecting and designing interactive tasks, sequencing content in lectures and lessons, supporting students' language development and output and developing students' cognitive and critical thinking skills. This helps to increase the quality of education, retain more students and attract talented international students.

LO Dubiecko

LO Dubiecko - EngLife

Liceum Ogólnokształcące im. Ignacego Krasickiego was established in 1948. The school is located in a small town near Przemyśl country, in the south-east of Poland. Dubiecko is the seat of administrative district called Gmina Dubiecko. It lies on the southern Poland's San River approximately 28 kilometres west of Przemyśl and 36 kilometres south-east of the regional capital Rzeszów. The town has a population of 1150. The school is named after a famous Poland's leading Enlightenment Polish poet, Ignacy Krasicki, who was born in Dubiecko.

Dubiecko and the nearby villages create a picturesque landscape and are atractive for nature lover tourists. Also, the region is close to the Bieszczady Mountains, which is a mountain range that runs from the extreme south - east of Poland and north-east of Slovakia through to western Ukraine. The region is famous for its unspoiled wildlife, it's full of hiking trails and attracts loads of tourists not only from Poland.

Liceum in Dubiecko gives to its students an opportunity to choose the subjects they want to learn. Here they can develop their skills and gain a success according to their abilities. Our school isn't big and that is a real advantage because we approach each student individually. We teach in small groups what gives the teachers the possibility to discover students needs and capacities. The students can take part in after-school activities such as theatre classes and various activity clubs. Moreover, they can play in a school band "Black'n'Red"

The school takes part in the Polish-German exchange. The partner school is Christian von Mannlich Gymnasium from Homburg. Last year we celebrated the 10th anniversary of the exchange. The exchange is co-financed from the funds of Polish-German Youth Cooperation.

Our school is under the patronage of the Chemical Faculty of the Rzeszów University of Technology. Thanks to the fact our students can take part in laboratory workshops.

We also started cooperation with the Institute of Polish Studies and Journalism.

Our students have great hearts and willingly organize and participate in charity events. We regularly take part in:

  • Noble Gift- the whole school joins the campaign and collects food and clothes for those in need.
  • Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity- our volunteers raise money for charity.
  • Collecting food for dogs and cats in need at the animal adoption centre.
  • Action organized by the foundation "Rock'n'Roll" "Give a Hair".

The Nordic
EdTech Forum N8

?N8 Nordic EDTech Forum? - EngLife

The Nordic EdTech Forum - N8 - brings together 180 founders of education innovation companies and evangelists from 8 Northern European countries: Iceland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Latvia & Lithuania. The Nordic EdTech Forum was founded in 2016 by Märt Aro (DreamApply) and Ernest Jenavs (Edurio) to share similar experiences between the EdTech founders and support them in achieving their mission.

Nordic EdTech Forum is in charge of the EngLife's repository creation in this project, and is actively involved in other outputs of this project with its representatives Petra Kucharova and Märt Aro.

The main aim of the Nordic EdTech Forum is to offer a platform for sharing experiences, information and support to its members by:

  • Bringing together and building a network of founders of innovation and EdTech companies.
  • Having public and political representation of education innovation company founders.
  • Opening discussions about innovation in education between EdTech founders and other market stakeholders.
  • Sharing experience and learning from each other.
  • Informing market stakeholders on how to cooperate with EdTech companies.
  • Improvíng access to funding for education innovation companies in the Nordic region.

Expenditure on education globally is ~5 trillion EUR / year, which makes it one of the biggest cost articles for governments / taxpayers. On one hand it means that it is a very important area to improve as each innovation may have a significant impact on everyone's lives. It also means that the next biggest company in the world could be an education company. And we would like to see that those companies would represent Nordic values of cooperation, human rights, transparency etc.

  • Nordic EdTech Forum's impact on the international and national levels:
  • In cooperation with the UN we co-authored a vision for EdTech ecosystem development.
  • Contributed to vision for Next Gent GovTech, by Estonian CTO.
  • Contributed to further development of the European EdTech Alliance.
  • Furthered dialogue with the World Bank, OECD, EU, and many others.

Intellectual Outputs

The Partners work on the Intellectual Outputs of the Project in a collaborative fashion, in a spirit of reciprocity and co-construction. In the course of the Project we will ask ourselves the following questions to arrive at the intended Project results:

1. Performing the "Analysis on the English Language Acquisition Potential among Teens in a Digital Era"

How are digital resources used in the English language classrooms? What digital environment Junior students access recreationally? How can this time be used for language learning? The result is an analysis report on the English language learning environment in project partners countries and the behaviour of the target groups.

Analysis on the English Langauage Acquisition Potential

2. Creating a seminar module on "Exchanging good practice on language teaching and learning in highly volatile times"

Where is my institution in the process of teaching methods upgrade? How am I as a teacher prepared to teach in changing environments? What are the currently available methods to teach in an international and intercultural English language classroom? What online re-sources are available to teachers and how is technology related to education? The output is in a form of reusable guidance material for a seminar module for the benefit of project partners and English language teachers not in the project, wishing to organise a similar seminar at their home institutions;

4. Developing a Digital Resources Repository

What online tools are there? What quality and value do they represent? How can they be included in the methodology of teaching English with the aid of technology? We reviewed existing digital resources and provided their definitions and application for the wide use from our website. The Digital Resources Repository is an online database in the form of a searchable website available globally to English language teachers, strengthening their teacher's toolbox.

5. Researching, developing and writing a Methodological Framework on Integrated English Learning for Digital Native Junior Students: A Pedagogical Approach

How to achieve goals set to improve teachers' competencies to teach more effectively in a space which inherently includes the digital dimension and contribute to their development as professionals? How to assure that the approach works? EngLife will a) develop, b) test and c) refine a comprehensive approach to an English language programme design and contribute to the development of the profession of English language teachers, at the same time providing solutions relevant to today's generation of students.

The test phase of the methodology involved a designated students body from each school for a semester long e-Twinning project, whereby the EngLife methodology was used by teachers with an active participation of the students. The result ia a methodology published online: a comprehensive, innovative approach to language teaching which can take place both inside and outside of the classroom (and, in certain crisis situations, temporarily entirely online), which strengthens the profession of English language teachers in secondary education worldwide.

6. Creating and delivering the EngLife Methodology Workshop (C2) and creating the Train-the-Trainer Module

Each school Partner recruited participant teachers for this workshop who 1) tested and implemented the methodology and 2) tought other teachers in their communities the EngLife approach. During the workshop teachers presented their own practices to decide which ones support the methodology and practiced how to actually translate the existing courses and programmes in teaching English into the EngLife approach.

They also discussed issues related to cyber safety and well-being of students in increasingly online learning conditions. Importantly, the teachers learnt techniques in the train-the-trainer model, whereby gaining a skill further propagating this innovative methodology they helped create. The result is a reusable guidance material which enables English language teachers at secondary education to train other teachers in the EngLife Methodology.

This material provides a train-the-trainer frame for teachers. The model is a training strategy whereby the trainer (an expert) trains others and simultaneously teaches them how to train more persons to use the given solution. Train-the-trainer module also develops teachers’ competence in adapting to the varying roles of a teacher in a new an environment, including communicating effectively, designing innovative tasks and activities commensurate with learners' needs and abilities, demonstrating positive values and behaviours, as well as supporting, coaching and mentoring learners in their process of learning.

7. Designing and developing an online course "EngLife: Teaching English for a Life-time"

This Online Course is a tool intended for teachers wanting to increase the effectiveness of their language teaching and modernise education delivery in their classrooms. It will provide useful technology insights and operational guidelines for how to manage the change in the teaching approach and how to implement teachers’ own professional development piloted during the project. It is a summary of the entire process.

8. Researching, developing and writing "Policy recommendations on the use of on the use of technology in English language teaching"

How do we assure that the approach used in this project reaches institutions which decide on the shape of English language education today? How to involve all relevant stake-holders in the discussion? The result is a policy document which can be shared without limit.

In accordance with my motto - "Who dares to teach must never cease to learn" - I constantly involve myself in trainings and activities to hone my skills in the field of using technology in the classroom. My interest in technology started with a course of CALL (Computer Assisted Language Learning) I took while doing my master's degree in TEFL at St. Michael's College in Vermont (USA). Since then, I have always been an advocate for integrating technology into teaching. I also place a high value on online safety. I undertake a number of initiatives to raise students' awareness and to develop good online practices.

After earning my master's degree in Applied Linguistics from the University of Warsaw, I entered the world of education to explore my passion for foreign languages and teaching. I started this adventure as a kindergarten teacher and a freelance translator, but I very soon realised that this was not a perfect fit for me. Fortunately, I didn't have to wait long to find my dream job, which was, and after 6 years still is, teaching English in CLV LO in Warsaw. In this relatively new bilingual secondary school, I have a unique chance to teach wonderful and open-minded young people, and I genuinely believe that this is my true calling. What I absolutely love about my job is that I can take part in various trainings, projects, exchanges and amazing initiatives like our EngLife project :) I'm an active person who likes travelling, learning new things, meeting inspiring people, and therefore I'm really looking forward to our cooperation!

Monika Zientarska

Hello everyone. My name is Monika and I've been a teacher for 17 years. I work in high school CLV LO in Warsaw and I teach English language and Social studies in English to students in bilingual groups. My students are from 14 to 18 years of age and they are very curious, open-minded, eager to broaden their horizons, young people. In my class I encourage students to have a voice, ask questions and participate actively in conversations regrdless of their level of confidence. I believe that taking up challenges thus gaining new experiences contributes a great deal to teacher's self-development which in turn has invaluable and indisputable effect on the whole process of education for young generations.
