Trans-lingual Express is a modern foreign language project by Eastside Educational Trust. It is designed to bring the magic of film and the moving image into the languages’ classroom. The project enables young people to create short documentaries in their target language and to exchange their films with their peers abroad. Combining technology with the chance to tell stories, the project provides inspiration for even the most reticent language learners by reminding them that language learning is about communicating their passions.
In February 2008, Eastside Educational Trust commissioned David Palazón to prepare and deliver a series of film workshops to young adults learning Spanish in London and edit the results into 3 short films. Trans-lingual Express was awarded the 2008 European Award for Languages presented by Sir Trevor MacDonald in June 2009 at the British Film Institute.
