Contemporary Literacy in Contemporary Kids

A unique and enriching experience of continuous learning

I’d like to reflect on the experience I had as a student and as a person. I’d like to say that this kind of project makes everyone grow in all perspectives.

Being part of this project has helped me make many very good friends and develop my English skills. It has taught me how to make my own decisions, work in groups and enjoy all these little moments and opportunities that may come into one’s life probably once only.

I lack the words to define what the trip and the project means to me, but I can say that it was a unique and enriching experience of continuous learning.

In transnational groups we discussed many new topics.  We also debated important issues of our societies that universally concern people of all ages. We exchanged our viewpoints and learned from each other. As we came together from different countries, we learned to love and respect each other and the cultures we represent much better.

This trip taught me how to travel. Also, I discovered other cultures, their ways of life and new types of food. I visited beautiful places, got to know fantastic people and made friends forever. I enjoyed countless special moments, speaking English, being myself and I learned in every way.

Thank you for letting me be part of this project. It has been one of the best experiences of my life.
