Spain March 31 – April 6, 2019 – Training in the Learning / Teaching / Training Activities – LTT
The fourth project meeting for the learning, teaching and training activities was held from March 31 to April 6, 2019 in Villafranca de Cordoba, Spain. The official welcome was started by the Head Teacher with a short speech to the guests and the school community. In the artistic part, the students of the school presented Ode to Joy played on flutes. Then the participants, divided into groups, were shown around the school and the town. The participants in the international groups were hosted by Spanish students in their family homes. This allowed to integrate this international group and open it to further project activities. In order to familiarize us with the cultural offer of the region, the hosts prepared trips to Cordoba and Seville. We had the opportunity to see the historic part of Cordoba, in particular its greatest attraction, the mosque – La Mezquita. The organizers prepared a visit to the local theater school, during which we saw a rehearsal of the performance, costume and set design studios. Another attraction was a trip to Seville with its greatest monuments – Real Alcazares, the Cathedral and the Maria Luisa Park.
Participants also had the opportunity to learn about Andalusian cuisine and taste such dishes as gazpacho, paella and seafood.
The main design activities were to give the final shape to our project film entitled “Europe unites us”. At the outset, each school presented its pre-assembled film with an added title, subtitles and soundtrack. Each screening of the film was accompanied by great emotions. It should be noted that, as previously agreed, the films were recorded in their native languages and supplemented with subtitles in English. On the initiative of the Polish group, it was decided that all films will be linked with the inscription “I love Europe” made of single letters. For this purpose, the students positioned themselves according to the shape of these letters and then their photos were taken. Participants in international groups worked on the final version of the project film. They put the title of the film, the logo of the project and the founder. The project meeting for the learning, teaching and training activities ended with a joint fiesta at the Villafranca de Cordoba center and the distribution of certificates and small gifts.
