Erasmus in Schools
It was probably the constellation of stars (ESN stars:)) what brought two SocialErasmus activities to Kosice in one day! The first one was very generous deed of our Erasmus and ESN members who donated blood. It was the first Erasmus blood donation in Kosice ever. The second was was well-known activity Erasmus in Schools.
Even if the Erasmus in schools project is planned in May, by the nice coincidence ESN Kosice organised this special integration of international students with local students already in March. Andrea Hanáková, ESN Kosice, had teaching practice of English and Geography at Hotel Academy in March, therefore two Scottish Erasmus students were invited to her English class.
There were many different activities prepared for students of the 4th year. Started with speaking, completing the crosswords which contained some funny facts about Scotland, continued with talking about interesting tourism destinations in Scotland which should students locate on the map of Scotland. The last activity was language interchange while Slovak students taught Erasmus students some funny Slovak words such as “čučoriedka, šrác, guľôčka”, Erasmus students taught Slovak students some Scottish words „aye, wit, dae, wan“. They created the logo of SocialErasmus composed of their hands and wrote those new words inside what was very nice end of our session.
The 45min passed really fast and both local students and Erasmus students had a lot of fun. It was the first chance to speak with native speakers for most of Slovak students and they really enjoyed it.
