About PopuLLar


PopuLLar is a project that is 'Owned' by the students, they work autonomously and collaboratively. The project asks students to write their own lyrics to songs of their choice. They then translate their songs in to the target language they are learning, The students then record their song (audio or video) and share it with other students all over Europe.

Students will be able to combine their love of music, with creativity, literacy, digital competencies, group collaboration and, most importantly, use languages.
