Title: Folk Costumes Around the Globe


Students are invited to provide pictures with folk costumes, describe traditions, upload videos with folk dances from their countries.


The project is meant to give the students a chance to share their folk/national costumes, traditions and dances, in order to promote their folklore and traditions. The students will provide pictures of folk costumes together with a short description of them and give information about the occasions when people use/used to wear them. Students can also create short videos reflecting traditions and folk dances from their countries. The pictures and the videos must be uploaded on the project’s forum, where the interaction takes place.
