Seeking the roots of words

  • Let's get to know the Odyssey of Words


    Somewhere here begins the main activity of this project, which is the

    study of the etymology of all these words we use in our everyday life

    and are similar whether we live in Spain, or in Italy, in Greece, in

    Germany, in Romania ...


    On the next page you will find a long list of such words, divided into categories

    according to their subject.


    Your research will follow these steps:

    1.   First you will reply to the questionnaire, which can be found on the "Trans-

    national Groups" page.​

    2.  Based on your common choices, you will be divided into transnational groups.

    3.  A teacher will take over the coordination of your team.

    4.  A discussion thread will be created in the forum for each group. There you

    will choose the category of words you will deal with and then the words you will

    study. The responsible teachers will guide you on the way you will use the ICT


    5.  After completing the study of each word, you will prepare a ppt, in which you

    will present the results of your research.
