ACTIVITIES (students)

ENGLISH: Students in turns start working on interviews, questioning their classmates about their impressions of the project in general and more specifically about each workshop they dealt with.
They talk about their anxieties but also about their excitement, for each of the first year’s activities and then referring to the experience they gained by their two learning mobility trips, one in Seville in the Spanish partner’s hosting school and the other during the environmental project the school organised so as to give them the opportunity to see from close proximity what a Mastic tree looks like and have a hands-on-experience, on the actual place that the Mastic grows-the island of Chios. The answers are varied and they are all recorded, with students playing the part of reporters while others take over the role of the interviewee.
