After discussing typical courses in Sweden the rumour spread to the centre restaurant who obtained the recipe for a Swedish speciality called Janssons Frestelse. It was put on the menu one Friday in the centre restaurant which caters to about 300 residents and outside users of the centre.

500 marginalised learners across Europe are learning languages with ALLEGRO.


Not only did the Allegro language teaching project prove to be a very valuable and worthwhile experience for the students who learned a lot while still having a great deal of fun; the teachers also found the project rewarding . They all learned to experiment with new teaching methods and became less daunted by the idea of working with mixed level classes.

A great deal of progress was made by everybody, not only on a linguistic and professional level, but also on a more personal one. The students improved their English, but they also made a great deal of progress with regard to social and communication skills in general. This was a great help to them both in their everyday lives and at work, or when looking for work.

The teachers realised the importance of using the student’s personal experience as a key to lesson preparation. They also learnt that a friendly and fun classroom atmosphere is vital to put students at ease and in the right frame of mind for language learning. The more the lessons are fun the more they learn.

Thanks to Allegro, our language teaching methods have changed for the better and our teachers now continue to work “differently” and thus more effectively.
