Abstract

In the project LEENA, the two partner subjects Nutritional Science and English work together in an intervention study in order to foster both the health competency of adolescents and their communicative action competency in English. Following the intervention, the students were asked to assess the project. The current contribution analyses and interprets their answers and points out implications for interdisciplinary learning.
