My name is Jolka . I would like to tell you about my first visit in Lithuania. I hope my words will visualize atmosphere during visiting Lithuania: )
When I saw Vilnius for the first time I thought that it is very peaceful and beautiful town, also the most green city in Europe. It doesn’t look like a capital ,because streets are very clean ,air is fresh and clear. There’s no rush, no one is running ,there is no hurry. On every corner you can feel friendly atmosphere.
Now I would like to tell you about our visit to W2F.
I think that Lithuania and Poland are very similar countries. They have common history, similar economic situation and, unfortunately - similar problems.
Also their Computer Training Project in Lithuania is very similar to our Community Center Project. Both projects are about to teach people basic computer skills.
There are a few differences between our projects:
Our curse is 15 hours long and in Lithuania course last 30 hours. I think it is a good idea to spend more hours learning because this would increase people computer using skills. Practice is always a very good thing!
Next good thing is that during Lithuanian course teachers gave students free syllabuses. From my experience I know it is easy to forget what have you learnt if you don’t have those formations written down. I think we also should give our Polish students free syllabuses.
W2F created special project for disabled persons. They educated 400 people. Ithink we should also do it in Poland
I was fascinated about the idea of the promoting new campaign . The idea was to send shorts messages by mobile phone to people who have attended that course before. Today almost everybody have a mobile phone, and that commercial like this is not expensive.
I have to say that Loretta, Laura, Rita, Algimantos, Edvald organized our visit excellent. We had no time to boring. I think the best proof will be the photos with our happy faces …..
Thanks for all :) and see you soon!
