Our Last Few Days In Wroclaw

Hi everyone! I’m back in Berlin now, and I want to share what happened in our final days of the trip.

On Thursday we had English class again in the morning. We played more language learning games and gave a presentation on how we’d plan a different language learning trip. We also took a test at the end of the lesson. Later, we went to a Georgian restaurant. The food was really good.

On Friday we visited another company, Nokia, where they showed us their technology. It was interesting to see. Back at Basecamp, we said goodbye to George and Anna, our teacher and coordinator. We gave them flowers to thank them for a great two weeks. It was sad to say goodbye, but we were glad that they were surprised and happy with flowers we gifted them. We then checked out some universities and spent our last evening walking around the old city and drinking a few beers at bars with my colleagues.

On Saturday it was time to pack up and head to the bus station. Leaving the city was bittersweet because of all the good times we had. The bus ride to Berlin went by fast, and before we knew it, we were back home.

These two weeks were amazing. I had a great time with my colleagues. I’m really glad I got to experience Wroclaw. Thanks for following along!

See you on the next adventure!

Visiting Krakow

We went to Krakow by bus, which was about a 3-hour trip. It was Easter Monday, so it was really busy and most shops were closed. Krakow looked beautiful, and we got to eat some tasty Krakow sausage.

Back in Wroclaw, we learned about the EU at an information point. They gave us a presentation on what they do in Poland. Afterwards some of us climbed up many stairs to a big church tower to see the city from above. It was a great view!

On Wednesday we visited a company called Qulix, where we saw how software is made. It was cool to see. At the end of the day we did a little bit of shopping too.

Soon I will tell you about the rest of our trip!

A Vibrant Weekend in Wroclaw

This Saturday, our sightseeing journey took us through the city’s heart, where history and modernity blend seamlessly. The warm weather led us to the serene banks of the Oder River, a perfect spot for contemplation and enjoying the moment.

In the afternoon, we retreated to the comfort of our hotel’s public activity rooms for some spirited mini-golf and table tennis. It was a great way to relax and bond with friends.

As evening fell, the Oder River, illuminated by the city lights, offered a stunning view, reflecting Wroclaw’s beauty back at us. We rounded off the night with a stroll through the old city and a taste of local cuisine, soaking in the atmosphere of this vibrant place.

On Sunday, we had a great day in Wroclaw. The weather was perfect for a boat tour, so that’s what we did. It was really nice to see the city from the water. After the boat ride, we walked around, exploring new parts of the city we hadn’t seen before.

When it got dark, we started getting ready for our day trip to Krakow the next day. We checked our plans and made sure we had everything we needed. It’s exciting to think about visiting another city in Poland!

This weekend in Wroclaw was full of fun, and now we’re looking forward to what Krakow has to offer!

A Good Start for the Week

Our first full day in Wrocław, Monday, marked the official start of our language adventure. We gathered at 10:00 AM, ready to dive into the world of English language learning. Our coordinator had arranged for us to receive public transport tickets.

The day’s journey led us to the Semper Avanti office, where an array of interactive activities awaited us. We met our Teacher George, who is very kind and funny. The atmosphere was buzzing with nervous energy as we embarked on our first challenge: get-to-know-each-other games. Among these, „Getting-to-Know Bingo“ and mutual interviews stood out, not just as icebreakers, but as our first real test of conversational English. These games were not only fun but also incredibly effective in fostering a sense of community among us.

After the morning’s activities, it was time to shift our focus to more structured learning. We tackled a series of worksheets that gradually increased in difficulty, challenging us to apply what we had learned in a more formal context. The day culminated in a test that, despite the initial groans, turned out to be a valuable opportunity to assess our understanding and areas for improvement.

With our first session behind us, we were dismissed for the day. The evening was spent wandering through Wrocław’s Old Town. The sights and sounds of the city were a great experience, it was very beautiful!
