We will give one topic to each transnational team so that they can cretae their own collaborative mind-map through Twinners from mindmeister.Twinners from Turkish team will be responsible for inviting their own team members to cretae their own collaborative mindmaps.Finally,we will create a padlet to get the feedback of the students and prepare an online quiz through proprofs  so that the LSVC twinners can test what they have learned in Cafe Europe.After they take the quiz through proprofs  they will get their certificate and we will collect all the certificates in an e book.
