Mária Lalinská, Catholic University in Ružomberok, Slovakia
The paper is focused on the issue of folk art and culture and its interconnection with the foreign language education of high school students. In this paper we would like to share our experience with implementation of an international project Comenius entitled Folk Art and its Influence on European Culture which has been created by nine high schools from Europe and was launched in 2013. This project contains two basic dimensions : (inter)cultural and (pluri)lingual. We will discuss about our visions and actual educational results not only on cultural level but also on lingual level as an innovative element of foreign language education.
