  • Concerning the soft (interpersonal) skills, participants experienced new life situations to which they have to adapt. They improved their communication skills (in a foreign language) as they accomplished teamwork tasks in a collaboration atmosphere. They had to adapt to unforeseen situations, solving problems and opening their minds to different contexts. All activities had a main objective which was to develop in participants a critical thinking toward the women’s role in Europe art history, and so they were able to think and discuss on this topic. Taking into account the age of the participants the step taken in these skills was huge.
