He said: God made the man in His image and likeness, and made the critic like the cat…caustic style, sharp claw. Scathing but with good humour. In,

These are very important murals because of the technique used to paint the walls, we call it Fresco, because the drawings are painted on the top of a covering that must be wet during the whole process. These drawings are one of the religious heritage of the southern of Portugal. The fresco is a technique that was first used in Italy during the Renaissance period, where the paintings are made on a mortar of lime and sand still wet. In,

22 Through these courses EPFA is able to provide the people who live in rural or disadvantaged areas new skills and a new way of facing life, encouraging them to communicate with their families, friends and the project partners using the internet. Socialization is very important too, because the courses are also a perfect time to make conversation, meet new people, contact old friends, share experiences and ideas and at the same time feel valued by the other members of the community.

23 For most of the students it was the first time they had ever worked with a computer and surfed the internet, but everything went very well and they easily started working with the computers. Currently the students make research on the web and they exchange e-mails with their families, friends, teachers, coordinator and partners of this project. Long Life Learning Programme_Grundtvig 23

24 They searched for information related to the location of the different partners/countries; their traditions; food and monuments too. They searched for information related to the Portuguese traditions, especially from Alentejo. They found information on the web about the village they live in: monuments; songs; food; history… They got more confident using IT and having communication over the internet with people from other countries.
