Abstract

The incorporation of project work and Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in the teaching of English as a foreign language can have many beneficial outcomes. Research has shown that it can enrich the teaching and learning process, increase student motivation, collaborative skills and foreign language performance. Educationalists argue that it provides opportunities for authentic use of the English, increases willingness to participate in the teaching and learning process, as well as enjoyment. In addition, it develops language skills and critical thinking skills. Bearing the above into consideration, in this article we present a case study of project-based learning for the teaching of English as a foreign language in a primary school. We present the project organization, the stages we followed in sequencing the project activities, the expected challenges and difficulties and the beneficial outcomes. We conclude that the incorporation of Information and Communication Technologies and collaborative project work should form an integral part of the teaching of English as a foreign language.
