Welcome to the ICEPELL website!
What is ICEPELL?
ICEPELL is an Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership project which aims to support practitioners to confidently integrate intercultural citizenship education into English as a foreign language (EFL) lessons and library sessions with children aged 5 to 12 years using picturebooks.
