Chain Stories is for young native speakers of a Romance language who have only recently started to learn a foreign language at school.
This highly successful, collaborative project asks students in five schools, each of which speak a different Romance language, to write a story together, each school in their native language.
The students 'Intercomprehend' the other chapters written by the Chain partners, using the similarities between the Romance languages, and write their own part of the story.
The effect on students has been dramatic with an excellent raising of awareness and interest in learning languages.
The project has created an online website were teachers can form their own Chains of five schools. There they will find all the necessary guides, instructions and communication tools, to allow them to complete a Chain story autonomously.
