SI: "We came, we saw, we conquered" ;) (Poland)

Our students came back from the Finish exchange relaxed and full of wonderful memories. They told us interesting stories of various Finish customs and traditions of which they have become aware. They also recommended Finish sauna and traditional cuisine. ;)

We noticed that it was a great experience for them! In order to inspire their younger peers to learning languages (as we have another Erasmus+ project running at school) they prepared a display showing how rewarding their trip was.

SI: We are well-known in the local press! (Poland)

The stay of our students in Vesanto was a kind of an experience that all of them will remeber for a very long time. It has been also documented well in the local press. Luckily after three years of the project our students are used to being our „school celebrities”. ;)

They faced this challenge with bravery that we are proud of becuase it shows us that the intangible results of the project were also achieved. The students have become confident young Europeans with an open-minded way of thinking. ;)
