Short description of the event:
ESN Hasselt organized a Language Cafe event during the ExchangeAbility Week. Since it was ExchangeAbility project we tried to change the concept of the language cafe. First of all, we divided the participants in different language groups. Such as; English, German, French, Dutch, Spanish and Turkish. We distributed them different types of disability topics to talk about in different languages. Aferwards, they had opportunity to talk about their experiences and advise each other how might we support these students who has disabilities.
At the end of the our event we also tried to provide them relevant information about the project and how can we encourage the students with disabilities to go on exchange.
