eTwinning is a training program of the European Commission launched in 2005 for development cooperation among European schools. The students and teachers registered to the eTwinning have the opportunity to implement joint projects with other European schools. The key component of the study is the use of information and communication technologies. eTwinning project expands the scope of educational opportunities for students and teachers, increases motivation to learn and improves the level of openness to Europe.
The online network eTwinning Plus was created to involve the neighboring countries of the EU into the project, so Ukraine , Georgia, Moldova , Armenia, Azerbaijan and Tunisia joined it in 2013. This project is a platform for communication and exchange of experience, useful information and teaching methods for the teachers from different European countries. Our teachers of foreign languages A. Voron, A. Petrunko, O. Srivastava and L. Sovpenchuk are involved in this project.
