The project is called TuDOrs “Turning Learning Liabilities into Opportunities“ and aims to enhance the knowledge and skills of foreign language teachers in terms of educating people with learning disabilities.
About whom it is?
TuDOrs is addressed to:
- Foreign language teachers
- Foreign language schools

Immediate benefits from the implementation of the project also arise for people with learning disabilities, as foreign language teaching will be done in a way that meets their special educational needs.
