Wednesday has been really nice for us and not necessarily because of the arrival of the snow. We were invited to Gimnazjum Nr
Popławy where we had the chance to introduce international voluntary service,
our countries and we also prepared a little competition for the students to
make the lesson more interesting. We had two lessons, one with a group of about
20 students, the next one was around 30 students. Let’s take a closer look to
the events, shall we? :)

The lesson started with introduction of voluntary service, presented by our dear coordinator, Sylwia. She was also helping us with translation of tasks later on. Then came country presentations. The students got to know more about
Russia, its traditions, crazy winter and the
Polish village in Siberia. They now also know
the height of the Hungarian Parliament, what inventions Hungarian scientists
gave the world as well as some basic phrases. After that, the students were
split into teams. In case of the first class, we had the boys’ and the girls’
team and at the second class, we divided them in three teams with the popular
counting method. The teams had two tasks.

One was concentrated on Geography of the two countries. They had to find the countries that are not neighbours and for extra points, they could also write the name of the neighbouring country in the correct place on the map. While these were being corrected, a new challenge began: recognising pictures. We were showing the pictures on the projector and the task was to raise the flag of the country where the picture belongs. The fastest one gets the point. Then we added all the points and the team with the biggest number of points was given a certificate to prove their knowledge of Hungarian and Russian culture.
After the lessons have finished and we have eaten our delicious obiad, we had the chance to take a walk in this beautiful, modern and well-equipped school. All teachers were kindly welcoming us and it was great to see that the students enjoyed our visit, as well. For sure, we had a great time and we are looking forward to our next visit! : )
