Next day we started our program with presentations of our countries. As you can see in the pictures it was full of interesting information and we absolutely loved it. It was for all of us the first opportunity to present something to someone. We all were full of stress. But we managed it! And we are thankful for that.

Beside the presentations we also tried to get know each other more and moreer. The most difficult part for us was to pronounce and remember the new names of the others. French, Slovak and Czech names are really different. So we played games such as “get-to-know-you” and so on. It was really fun. All the time we communicated in English. We enjoyed it.

Really interesting for us was a meeting and discussion with business representatives from the Moravian-Silesian region. We welcomed the owner of Dynamic Group company Mrs. Kateřina Haring, the owner of rehabilitation centre Mrs. Anna Mikšíková and the owner of MIXA VENDING company Mr. Miroslav Mixa. We had many questions about their businesses. It was very enriched for us to meet this kind of businessmen. Thank You.
