The goal of the project is to improve the quality and efficiency of non-formal adult education services as higher quality leads to higher motivation of adult learners. This way adult learners will not only take more active part in various non-formal education activities but at the same time developing their sense of common sociality and citizenship.
The basis to guarantee high quality of non-formal education services is the development of educators` skills, competencies as some of educators have no or scant experience and no education in the andragogical field and in the current situation they are obliged to adapt their attitude towards changing working environment, target group and educational context.
The aims of the project are not only to gain theoretical knowlegde but also to experience and test the andragogical methods and strategies on themselves.
The plan for cooperation and international meetings consist of theoretical and practical parts. Courses or seminars would be carried out by experienced psychologists, andragogues and management professionals in different environments: museum, public library, university, gymnasium, facilities of sport and creativity center, etc.

The main purpose of the project was to reach people who use public transport (PT) to travel to Baltic and Nordic countries to work, to study or for other purposes and help them to realise the importance of learning the language of a destination country and to accept norms of courtesies and behaviour they should follow while in a country.
The final product was DVD -survival phrases in a role play in Lithuanian, Swedish, Estonian, Finnish and Danish and a phrasebook disseminated among travel agencies and adult education centres for self-learning.
The idea of the project was born from the realization how important it is for people travelling to neighbouring countries to know at least several words or phrases of the country’s language. It can help make your trip much more pleasant and meaningful and feel more self-confident. Moreover, your efforts to address people in their native language will be most rewarding and people will become more open and friendly because of the respect you have exhibited for their country and culture. They will be pleased to learn that their language is important for a newcomer who has come not just for work, studies, but on a visit as well.
The project was selected as a good practice example and presented during Baltic EXPRO 2010.
