Cross the culture – Youth Exchange, Georgia

This nice time already left. Youth Exchange granted by Erasmus plus – Youth in Action was with topic about culture and it run so fast that we were so shocked when the end date came. We were 32 participants from Georgia, Slovakia, Latvia and Armenia. Now our frendships could just stay in our hards. From each country came one group lider and 7 participants. We created one nice big group og young and active people.

Youth exchange took a place in small city Rustavi, which is about 30 minitues fare a way from the capital- Tbilisi. We spent here nice 10 days from 03-12. August 2015.

This year we were talking especially about our cultures therefore the topic : ”Cross the culture”. During 8 working days participants were talking about national heros, sport, dances, folk songs and so on.11885277_883917611661788_5968818738214067454_n

The topic about cultere have several points of view, therefore we were also talking about us and our family habits and habits in your countires. We found out some different view to us and how different people can react to different tasks as: Do you like more Chacapuri or Khinkali ?- For people who dont know, this is an real name for really good food in Georgia. I was not so creative to create some crazy names of food.

Thanks to this youth exchange participants improve their english skills and comunication in english and russian language. Via different non-formal activites they learnd about legends, fairy tails, short stories from each country. Participants have opportunitie to meet new coultures, countires, religions and habits from different countires. Between some of participants especially particpants from the same country are now so strong  relationship that they are planning to visit. Also participants from different countires are still in contact with all participants. They are talking a and planning some next projects.
