The Communication Media students (teacher Cristina Rozas) have interviewed the students participating in the Erasmus + project. We show it below:
What does it mean for you to be part of a project like Erasmus +?
I really believe that it is a great opportunity for this school, which is good not only in Rota, for example, but in other countries where we are going to present the projects. And I think it’s a great opportunity for us as representatives to communicate with the rest of the schools, since almost all the students are working to help us in this project. Although we are the ones we are going to take the works outside.
What brings you more?
Well, educationally, because you can get fluent speaking English, also we learn to live with other people, not only with your surroundings and we are getting more knowledge about the supportive associations in Rota.
What do you know about Romania?
Apart of the basic information that we have been told here in the school, which is about the capital and where it is located in the European continent, we have also been looking for information each one of us and I think the most interesting thing is that it has its own currency. A curious fact is that they have the largest administrative civil building in the world, the flag is red, yellow and blue.
Do you think you are going to connect with Romanian students?
I think so because we are going to live with different cultures and we can learn each other a bit from each other.
Do you have prejudices about this country?
I personally do not have any prejudices with the people of this country.
Have your opinions about local associations changed?
The truth is that it is because conducting the interviews and all that has been an enriching experience for all of us. It also allowed us to see that there are many more associations than we knew and that participating in an association does not mean being there every day collaborating with everyone, but, that you can go one day to do something that is good for you . For example, if you’re good at painting, maybe you can help paint the house of someone who needs it. You really do not have a hard time because it’s something you like and you’re doing a good job. I also think that it has been a very interesting experience because we have met rewarding people.
Tell me an anecdote while you were preparing the work.
When we were surveying people, many of them did not know if they knew any NGOs until we started talking about it. When we started talking about the subject, they remembered some. Many of them who participate in NGOs participate in non-local, global NGOs.
