  • Evaluation and Feedback from the participants

The event concluded with the evaluation and collection of feedback from the participants. All participants stated that generally speaking the attitude towards bilingualism is positive. Among the conclusions achieved, can be mentioned:

It is a privilege that BiMo project targets parents who play an important role in students’ foreign language study but are often left out and unaware of what a bilingual education programme means and therefore are unable to make the best decisions about the education of their offspring.

The project brings positive effects of CLIL programs on students’ cognitive development and their mother tongue competencies.

It is vital that students explicitly realize that a foreign language is not a language spoken by the English teacher but a real means of communication.

Teachers’ competencies, enthusiasm and motivation were highlighted as factors contributing to the success of bilingual and CLIL education.
