Due to the global covid19 pandemic, our event did not actually take place in Latvia, but we met online. The whole event took place in Microsoft Teams.
The whole week was full of exciting events and presentations.
On the first day (8th of February), we were able to listen to presentations from other countries about their countries and schools, and we had also prepared our presentation. Also we had some interesting ice braking activities.
On the second day we were introduced city Jelgava and we had the opportunity to take part in various quizzes and interactive games about Jelgava.
On the third day, which we thought was one of the nicest, we took part in a Latvian cuisine workshop where we made potato pancakes, which turned out to be very tasty.
Unfortunately, we could not take part in Thursday’s events, because we had a test exam in Estonian at school and we were not allowed to be absent.
On the last day, we had the opportunity to get acquainted with Latvian culture through various videos and presentations. We were able to test our knowledge again in a quiz about Latvia. This completed our entire project.
In our opinion, the whole event was very well organized, especially considering that we could not really meet and Latvia had to organize the event in completely different conditions.
We once again had a nice week with our international friends. Hopefully we’ll meet again someday.
