Elina Kyasperova – How does the work in EU parliament goes

Oliver Robin Alt – How much there is for me yet to learn
Mari Põldma – How EU Parliament works. I had no idea about it.
Tarmo Murula – How the European parliament works
Hanna Kerstina Kartau – Talking to the local youngsters about their school-life.

Cerlyn Treumann – Yes, I have more knowledge about the elections to spread now.
Elina Kyasperova – Yes, I will vote in future
Jan Arnar Põldma – Yes, I’ll do a presentation in my school about this topic and youth exchange in general and i definitely continue applying to the projects of nyh
Oliver Robin Alt – Yes, taking part in different projects
Mari Põldma – In EU topics maybe no, but I want to go to more youth exchanges.
Tarmo Murula – Yes.
Hanna Kerstina Kartau – Not sure about the field of the project topic, but what I would definitely like to continue doing is attending projects like this.
Selman Erkan – Yes, of course. Voting is part of our life and encouraging people on that way is important too
Would you recommend it to your friends? I yes, why? If not, why not?
Villiam Põldma – I do, it will open a new window of possibilities for them.
Anna-Christi-Karita Aruksaar – I recommend these kind of projects to everyone. It is a great opportunity to grow, learn and have fun at the same time in a consentrated way. Also these kind of projects unite people with different backgrounds, culture and make us more tolerant and understanding of the different.
Cerlyn Treumann – No. Too many people from one country. If there were 5-6 people from each country and 6-7 countries it would’ve been way better.
Elina Kyasperova – Yes, because it gives you an opportunity to find friends, practice language and discuss topic and learn it in unusual way
Jan Arnar Põldma – Yes there are many reasons but one thing is for sure you’ll come back as a completely changed person: more matured more open and more confident in yourself. Plus it’s an unique opportunity to have so many people from different backgrounds interacting a sharing a piece of themselves with you
Oliver Robin Alt – Yes, tomorrow I will do a good of the project in my school because I enjoyed it that much
Mari Põldma – Yes. These kinds of projects are a great way to gain knowledge and grow personally.
Tarmo Murula – Yes. You learn many.
Hanna Kerstina Kartau – I definitely would, a youth exchange is a great opportunity to learn, travel and meet new people at the same time.
Selman Erkan – I would definitely recommend to my friends because you can actually learn and gain a lot from these projects so they should definitely join.
More comments or anything else you would like to share? You can add here in your own language, if you want!
