Second Learning Teaching and Training Activity at Liceo Carlo Montanari, Verona
From 1st to 6th of April 2019, students from the four schools involved in our Project met at Liceo Carlo Montanari in Verona, Italy. Croatian, Spanish and Turkish students were hosted by Italian families in a warm and friendly atmosphere.
We did a Verona city tour visiting the famous Arena and Julliet’s house, rafting in awesome Adage river, a trip around Garda lake and surounding beautiful villages. Students played games and some sports and also attended Italian lessons with their hosting mates and had a day trip by train to amazing Venice. They enjoyed Italian food, which they really loved, both at home and at local restaurants.
After two rehersal sessions we finally recorded the flasmob “I can see clearly now” on the shore of Adige river and Piaza Bra in Verona city centre thanks to local authorities that allowed filming in both spots and can be seen in our YouTube channel.
It was a great experience for students, as for many of them it was their fist time flying , abroad and with no parents, first time packing their luggage and an exciting adventure. They learn to share, to listen, to express in a different language and had the chance to be with our Young people with their same interest, likes and future ahead. The farewell moment was really emotional for students and teachers too. We all promised to keep in touch!
Between 20th and 27th October 2018, the 2nd transnational meeting of the Erasmus+ K219 project “I’m not speechless and invisible. Don’t let me behind” took place in Çorum, Turkey. Two teachers from each team attended this meeting. They showed to each other the activities carried out in their schools in relation to the Project since the previous meeting in Osijek, Croatia.
Teachers also planned the activities to be carried out by their students as well as those that have to be developed in the next meeting in Verona, Italy, which will be held from 31st of March to 6th April 2019 and all topics about it were discussed and agreed.
During the week teachers had time to work but also to know the Turkish culture and History with carefully planned visits to main museum, Mosques and cities which were relevant in times of the Otoman Empire such as Merzifon and Amasya. We have to highlight the hospitality of the Turkish team, they were extremly well organized and really good hostes, as they say “your pleasure is our pleasure”.
