Take a look at Mieke's photos!

There are some nice visual memories on her weblog now. Don't you just wish you could stay here a few moths more? Well, you can always come back soon...

Nearing the End - Presentations

On Wednesday, (9.00-10.30) we have our last session. I have put a time schedule up on the noticeboard for you to sign up for a presentation slot and to indicate what equipment you need (PC, projector, video, cassette, CD, etc)

I have also to ask you to complete the last assignment in the weblog, although you are welcome to continue writing here for as long as you like (some of last year's students continued writing in the weblog until March the year after - they used it as a way of keeping in touch.)

The last assignment is:

Now that you are nearing the end of your stay, I'd like you to write a short summary of the things you have done and seen that have most impressed you, and imagine you are writing to one of next year's students. What would you suggest they do / not do?

That's it. See you on Thursday

catalan people are nice!

For the first time since i am here, i met some nice and friendly catalan people. Last friday we had to do an assignment for Team Development. We went in groups walking in the neighbourhood nearby school. We needed to ask some people in the neighbourhood some questions and than we needed to see how they responded and helped us. And in all the 3 shops the people were very friendly and helpfull. THey were open for questions and gave us even more information than we needed.
I am glad that i have met some nice catalan people before i go home in 2,5 weeks!! Ik hope to meet more nice people in these weeks!!
