School and Family Together for the Integration of Immigrant Children

The idea behind the SOFT project is that the diverse languages and cultures that people bring with them when moving countries are a huge asset. Integration is not about forcing people to stop using their home language; it’s about creating a situation where everyone feels valued and accepted. The SOFT project takes schools as an important starting point for this feeling of acceptance, by encouraging classes to learn a language together. A key point of the project is that the language learning is based on collaborative activities in which children work together as a group in the classroom.
