Turkey meeting

At the beginning of June we had a great possibility to visit Turkey. The meeting was without students this time, there supposed to be headmasters and project managers.

During the week we had very hard-working days. Partners introduced the partner-countries educational systems; we also discussed the similarities and differences in the systems.

Very warmhearted were meetings with the students, they surrounded us in every minute we were out of meetings. Also the students gave us a very nice concert and also small children showed a nice ball-dance.

Different partners introduced the possibilities to use multiple intelligences in different classes; we saw a nice film about Portuguese students.

As this was the last meeting of the first year we wrote the main part of the interim report.

Turkish partners showed us very beautiful places in Istanbul and around it; also we had a boat trip on Bosporus.

We got a taste of the local food, which is quite different from Estonian food. Desserts were just all ten times sweeter.

And of course the culture and the people are quite different from northern European countries.

The most heartwarming were the lessons with the sweet children (they asked thousands of questions about us, our countries, we shared e-mails and even phone numbers). Turkish colleagues’ warm and nice hospitality is indescribable. We all felt like at home.

Also some time took the planning of next meetings in Estonia and Netherlands.
