  • LanguageAlissa Vorobjova EUROOPA SOLIDAARSUSKORPUS poola poland

The best way to learn a language is to get into this language environment. For a month I lived among Polish-speaking children and instructors. During this time I was able to learn to understand 50% of what they say and speak some Polish myself. There were also people from other countries with whom we developed English and taught each other our languages.

  • Responsibility

We were in a camp with many children of different ages. I learned to take responsibility for them and what they do. Also for the events that were arranged.

  • Social skills

Despite the fact that I am a very friendly and open person, it is difficult for me to communicate with a large number of people and speak in public. However, in the camp every week we had 30 new campers and several new foreign volunteers. This month I became much more confident because I interacted with all the people, helped with events, and most important was supported by other people.Alissa Vorobjova EUROOPA SOLIDAARSUSKORPUS poola poland

  • Survival in the forest

I have lived in the city all my life and rarely found myself in the conditions of life in the forest. So I had to learn how to live without electricity and water, chop wood, make fires, deal with tents, use a compass and walkie-talkies, and sleep in tents, hammocks, and on the ground. The whole daily routine had changed.

  • Organizing

Every week the topic of the camp changed. In one of these weeks, I decided that I would help in organizing the plot of the camp and events, distribution of roles, etc.

P.S. I succeeded

  • Be persistentAlissa Vorobjova EUROOPA SOLIDAARSUSKORPUS poola poland

Sometimes you have to speak in confidence and be persistent to be heard.

A presentation without a computer

Since there was no electricity, I had to figure out how to present a country without auxiliary help. I made the flag of Estonia myself, told about the country, and showed and taught the children Estonian dance.

  • Acting

For one week I had to play a role of a monster every day. Turned out I am great at playing monsters so I was told that I am the best witch ever (I hope that was a compliment).
