GRGPS- Spread Literature into the world
Our common passion for teaching and literature led us to explore using the latter to facilitate the former. Our goal was to help our learners to develop all skills in their target language (English) through working with extracts from Greek books and poems ,evaluate them for both effect on reader and means to reach that effect, thus learn to appreciate why vocabulary and grammar are used in certain ways and eventually pave the way for them to produce their own work .
We formed three groups ( A 1.1, B2 and C2 ). In our presentation we aim to introduce our colleagues to our project, explain in detail the steps we took and the procedure towards our end result and hopefully convince them to participate in a project in which learners from all countries will work on their national literatures and share their work with learners from other countries.

I have been teaching English and German for 18 years now and I have been running a Language Centre for the last 12 years. I teach all levels and ages, but mainly primary and high school learners.
