>Durch der-die-das mit viel Spaß – App for learning German articles and declinations
Durch der-die-das mit viel Spaß – App for learning German articles and declinations — Learning the articles and declinations of the German language is a difficult task. Everyone who ever learned German knows this! With this application we want to make it easier to learn articles by allowing it to happen in a playful manner. The project has been running since October 2019 and the app will be ready in September 2021.
Kuarki - Traveller between wor(l)ds is a free-of-charge application for multilingual children from the age of five. It helps children develop their vocabulary and practice reading and writing. Children who use one language at home and another in school frequently suffer from gaps in their vocabulary in both of those languages. This app aims to help bridge these gaps, while also providing users with new knowledge in an interesting and fun way. The app also helps monolingual children who are learning a foreign language and would like to improve their reading comprehension capacities.
Vortoj – Making learning words fun with a healthy dose of movement! — New PC game from E@I about accuracy, languages and having fun.

As an added bonus, you get to have lots of fun with your colleagues, friends and students in the two player version! Language teachers will appreciate Vortoj’s dictionary editor thanks to which you can finetune the word lists for the needs of students. The game combines a healthy competitiveness with a lot of fun and you get to move as well as put your memory to the test.
Computer for everyone — A course designed for people who do not possess basic computer skills, but who would like to.

The course is particularly targeted at workers who will be able to progress their careers with the help of the new skills provided. At the end of the project, all teaching materials will be released as an online course.
Multilingual Accelerator — The goal is to create a "multilingual accelerator" that will allow children to become multilingual more quickly and to trust their language abilities. The core idea is that learning Esperanto with a limit of 200 morphemes can boost the abilities of children in learning other languages.
Polish Online — The interactive e-learning platform polski.info will help you to learn the basic elements of Polish - the second most widely spoken Slavic language after Russian - and all of that online, effectively and for free. The platform is designated especially for foreigners, who would like to start speaking Polish and broaden their horizons about Poland - a country imbued with rich European history and culture.
Reflections — While European classrooms get more and more diverse and unite students of various identities, teachers throughout Europe are not always capable of implementing diversity approaches adequately and have troubles keeping up with the variety of needs of individuals in classes. The purpose of this project is to offer teachers educational strategies for cosmopolitan engagement, diversity education, philosophical inquiry as well as the practical employment of these principles in classrooms. The materials will support the acquisition of skills needed for active participation in democratic processes, critical thinking and living in diverse societies, as well as topics concerning human rights, climate change, globalization, fair trade and consumption.
Deutsch.info – didactic tools for schools — The goal of the site was to offer a free German course, for use not only in schools and universities, but also for those who wish to self-study. Thanks to this website, it is now possible to learn German without the need of a teacher. This project (2016-2018) can help German teachers who are in search of appropriate teaching materials for their students. There is information about the usefulness of CALL-method in schools. Every lesson offers downloadable exercises and games crafted for a school environment.
Traveller between wor(l)ds
This project (2016-2019) is a free-of-charge application for multilingual children from the age of five. It helps children develop their vocabulary and practice reading and writing. Children who use one language at home and another in school frequently suffer from gaps in their vocabulary in both of those languages. Although they usually get acquainted with the new language quickly, it is often at the expense of their native tongue. This app aims to help bridge these gaps, while also providing users with new knowledge in an interesting and fun way. For example, it contains interesting bilingual texts about topics the children will have come in contact with at school. This way, the child progresses and expands their vocabulary in both languages at the same time. The app also helps monolingual children who are learning a foreign language and would like to improve their reading comprehension capacities. A website with useful information is also being prepared for the parents and teachers of multilingual children.

IpuS – Let’s talk about Porno — This provocatively named project aims to draw attention to the dangers of online pornography and sexting for children and teenagers.

The project is aimed primarily at parents wanting their children to be able to use the internet safely and responsibly.
Schau hin — This project acts as a continuation of the project "Cybermobbing", extending the content of cyberhelp.eu to cover modern issues such as sexting and personal data protection, problems which pose the a serious threat to children and young people.

Cybermobbing — "Cybermobbing" is one of our projects which are unrelated to learning languages. During two years, a multilingual website will be created with instructions, information and warnings about the dangers of the digital world, primarily intended for children and teenagers.

— This project comprises the creation of a website to teach a the Czech language at the general A1 and A2 levels, as well as through a B1 level course specially designed for Slovaks and future doctors.
