EVALUATION OF THE PROJECT ( click to evaluate)
Fraser Shields, England : After a great project, none of us wanted it to end, there has only been smiles from everyone.
Shay Brock-Carey, England: Saying goodbye to everyone was possibly the hardest thing I have done in ages. But, at the same time it was amazing to know that I have been part of such a brilliant project! The memories will stay forever! Thank you for everything!!
:) :) :)
Aleksandra Drumeva, Bulgaria: Every country had to present a short play. Everybody had to present a personality of a foreign country. Not only do we this for fun but also we get to know each others’ history, which is the main point of the project.I think this project helped me to become more talkative and social, I learned many new things and most importantly – I found out that all of us,the Europeans,have common roots, we are not so different from each other after all .
Barbara Rose Harrington, England: I hate goodbyes but I have to say it's been amazing meeting-new people and also reuniting with others. I have had the best week ever and all the late nights have been worth it. I love and will miss everyone on this project to England. I and a couple of friends will be going around on a tour to all the countries very soon
Diogo Alves, Portugal: Thank you everyone who made my life better this year, hope you have a happy new year! And to those that I don't know I hope you have a happy new year too with amazing memories like the ones that I have from this year thanks to Comenius
