From a cold, but sunny Bragança, a message from the Erasmus + team.
Here in the mountains of Northern Portugal is a beautiful school in a small but culturally very rich town on the Spanish border.
It is very special to see how well our students manage in this setting. It helps greatly that four out of five speak a different mother tongue and switch effortlessly (to) from English to Spanish or French. Paandyar shouted happily: Learned something in Spanish, muchos gracias Mrs. Vega!
Now we are in a library with a view of the mountains and a medieval castle in a gigantic library to write this piece. The school is incredibly spacious for the number of students. With 600 students, they have a school at least three times the size of ours. In each corridor there is a full-time invigilator so that students do not misbehave, the espressos of the teachers are made (here) by a coffee lady and in the library as many as three or four employees are working. In addition to similarities in education, we also see some differences.
Today a full day with workshops, museum visits and a poetry evening. See you Monday!
