Latvian students reporting on their second exchange week at Altshausen


Valērija Trabo

English Summary:
In this report I explain how was going in Germany from the 11th to the 17th October during exchange programm „Fit for job: orientation to career and Everything about exchange week was great. We visited different cities, saw beautiful landscapes, learned new things, made new friends and met a great family, which is waiting for my visit in the summer. We tasted new foods, lived in a foreign culture, saw different types of jobs. It was so amazing that’s why it was hard to leave Italy. I have only positive and warm emotions. The project helped me to make decisions about my profession, as I saw different types of interesting and creative professions and took part in various workshops. This week taught me a lot; it was totally one of the best weeks of this year. I’m glad that I had a chance to participate in this project.

Amanda Ļoļāne

English Summary:
During this week in Italy, I have obtained new knowledge and strengthened my skills. Firstly I can surely say that, my English skills have really improved and after few days I did not even need to think before saying something. I can definitely say that Italy has a huge historical inheritance, such as buildings, art works and artists, writers and noticeable, smart people. Speaking of culture I have been inside of it for 1 week but already learned so many goods and learnt so much about it. I have tasted variety of Italian cuisine. I have learned eating manners and how important meals are for Italians. My host family showed me, how precious family, family traditions and time together is. 
Even now, after this project I am not sure about my future profession. This exchange thought me a lot of simple things that are easily understandable for others but were new for me. Communication, braveness and openness after this project have taken really important space in my priority list. Seeing of how happy and brightly they are living, I understood that things in my life have to change a bit. As I saw difference between Latvia and Italy it actually made me think of my life in Latvia more. Any kind of difference is acceptable, if you understand it and do not try to deny it or replace with something else. We need to learn to accept things as they are and that is what I learned the most in this exchange. Definitely, this exchange has made my point of view wider.

Jēkabs Kārlis Rasnačs

English Summary:
In this journey, I got an experience from Italian culture and society, learned about the differences between Latvian and Italian culture. We saw important Italian places and buildings. During this Exchange program, I got a chance to strengthen my personality for and opinions, and also the Exchange was a chance to analyse my native society. The trip was also great for developing the ability to speak and listen in English and Italian. Overall, the journey developed my intercultural communication skills and my ability to be cultural in this communication.

Caterina Maccaferri

English summary:
I really enjoyed this project because it was both very useful and funny!
First of all, the aim is to improve the career orientation in the partner schools and I think it is reached,
because students and teachers exchanged their ideas and now all the participants can present new
projects and ways to their own schools.
Then, it was a great experience for myself too: I improved my English and I overcame my “fear” to
speak a different language, I learnt a lot of things about Latvian culture (and German too), I visited a
place where I probably would never went without this opportunity and I knew new people.
I do not know yet what I am going to do after graduating, but I am sure that I will choose the best
career for me thanks the changements our school system could do by means of projects like this.

English Summary:
Interesting experience during one week in Germany. A lot of hours spent planning career. During one week I chose what I want to do in future. During one week I developed my speaking in English and I could easily talk with strangers without fear. Excursions around other cities were interesting because the tour guide was talking about the city very interesting.
