Goal of the activity

Our goal was to promote diversity and social inclusion through poetry and language exchange. 

Learning Objective for the participants

Through this activity, participants have the opportunity to learn and discover new poems and poets of different languages. These poems are recorded and submitted by international students and SPEAK language exchange participants.

Result of the activity

This activity was first shared on ESN Coimbra's social media platforms - namely Facebook and Instagram. Participants are given a weekly theme and an online form which they can fill out to send their recordings and poems. Each week, the recordings are shared, along with the original poem and its English translation (if available). This activity has generally been well-received by the participants, who relish having a space where they can share a little bit of their culture, as well as learn more about other people's culture through poetry.
