The Faces Questionnaire was applied in order to identify the stereotypes, the subjects have in connection with the physical aspect of the people living in Romania, Portugal, Lithuania and Turkey.
Thus, Turkish and Portuguese people were mostly associated with dark hair and dark complexion, while Lithuanian people were thought to be faired-hair and with a light complexion. Romanians were mostly associated with brown hair and brown eyes.

The analysis of the Stereotypes Questionnaire delivered to the Romanian teachers and students highlighted the prejudgements that the subjects had about the other countries involved in the present project.
The results of this questionnaire represent the starting point in designing the strategy for fighting against stereotypes and thus, create a more tolerant environment for us all.

One of the end products of our project was to design a mini-multilingual dictionary, to be used for basic communication when visting Romania, Turkey, Lithuanian and Portugal.
However, our product is more than just a simple dictionary. Thus, we strongly believe that language is a barrier difficult to overcome for both teenagers and adults.
Thus, basic communications in the langauges of the project countries will help beneficiaries to know more about each other and break national stereotypes. While working at the multi-lingual dictionary, but also during the Transnational Meetings we discovered that our langauges, though so different at a quick glance, had numerous words having the same origin, not to mention the similarity in pronountiation and meaning.
The Romanian Team made an English-Romanian Mini-Dictionary with easy-to-use expressions and words. This is part of the bigger multi-lingual dictionary, aimed to be one of the end products of our project.
Our multilingula dictionary can be downloaded if just click on Mini_Dictionary_Final_Version.
Here are a few slides taken from our Multi-Language Mini-Dictionary:
We could not break down our own stereotypes, the students’ and our fellow teachers’ prejudgements, related to the project countries, when we had no idea which they were. Therefore, all teachers invloved in the project decided that a stereotypes and a cultural questionnaire, as well as an analysis of the results were absolutely necessary in order to identify “the enemy” and fight against it.
The cultural questionnaire, which is the end product of the work done by all project partners can be downloaded if you just click on CulturalQuestionnaire.
