The learning outcomes in focus were:

• Foreign language speaking
• Knowledge about other countries
• Understanding of democracy and human rights
• Personal development
• Art‐based learning
• Inclusion and motivation of young people

The questionnaires were, twice, send to 150 young 8th grade students from Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Sweden and Guldborgsund in Denmark who took part in 3 parallel projects around in June last year.

Important knowledge about other countries

"First and foremost, the quantitative and qualitative research data indicate that the investigated international youth exchanges have a significant and positive impact on the students’ knowledge of other countries. This appears to be quite an essential result of an Erasmus-funded project, but, above all, it fully accords with current trends and policies on internationalization, both in general terms and specifically in educational terms” - the report states (page 4).

Requests for the report shall be emailed to project leader Bo Otterstroem, e-mail: bo@guldborgsund.dk
