"Raconte-moi une histoire..." is an intergenerational meeting between seniors and children. In an interactive and friendly environment, seniors can take on the informal role of "grandparents" by telling the youngest a story in their mother tongue. Indeed, a lot of room is left to the imagination and emotions.
On the one hand, this project allows seniors to promote their own language and culture to younger people. On the other side, it allows children to improve their listening and speaking skills. By listening to another language, they not only develop a keener curiosity for other languages and cultures, but they also learn to be more attentive.
"Raconte-moi une histoire..." project is organized by the Maison des Associations and the RBS-Center fir Altersfroen and supported by the Ministry for the Family, Integration and the Greater Region.
