Fourth project meeting took place in Portugal, Paços de Ferreira18-22 September 2013. Learning about national history, songs, dances, art, architecture, food and traditions, and also getting to know and communicating with local inhabitants, gave us great insight in Portuguese culture heritage richness. The stories were used to explore all the themes above and that made all information more attractive, interesting, easier understandable and memorable. And we even more strengthened the belief that storytelling methods using is important and necessary.
