Tere jälle!

A bit about the everyday life of us and the biggest observations I have made with the last weeks. ..

The first thing is that this weekend was the final of „Mūsu Eiropa. Mūsu pirmizrāde”. You can read about it more from our homepage, so I won’t give you all the details, but the long story short, there were 4 high school groups who had to do sketches/theater plays about EU. The thing that made me wonder A LOT was that all 4 teams mentioned Estonia in their performance. Most of them were actually even positive.  In some Estonia was one of the main characters of their show.  Those made me wonder – how come Estonia is so famous in Latvia? Really, I was thinking that if this competition would be held in Estonia among Estonian high school kids, I don’t think anyone would mention Latvia. I hope I don’t hurt someone now by telling you this. But this is actually what I would have expected from Latvians too, to forget Estonia and stick with the big and „important“countries like Germany, France, and Spain... I would really like to know how we became so famous that we are living under the skull of Latvian teenagers/high school kids. Some ideas?

www.klubsmaja.lv-volunteer2011-dinaHei everyone. This time I have so many things to write about! So I will leave Estonian language crash course and my first name day stand in line and write about something that was on my mind even before I came to my EVS in Latvia and still haven’t gave me rest. The next entry about the wonderful event and name day will follow soon. So here my thoughts come.

 

www.klubsmaja.lv-volunteer2011-dinaIn my last blog I mentioned how kind and cool were the students from Jugla schools 8 class. Well, today I had really really good experiences with also 9th and 7th grade from that school. They are just amazing kids! First of all – their English level is really good. The second thing is that they were really nice and positive, asked a lot of questions and were interested in Estonia and EVS. Also of course what do I like in Latvia and what is different here from my home. In the end of the lesson with 9th grade the class gave me map of Latvia with little post-its. Each student had to write down a place they would suggest that I should visit here. First thing when I got home from the visit, was to put the map up to my wall! In some places I have already been, in some places I was planning to go before I met them but some places are something new, so their help was definitely needed to give me the right direction. Thank you guys!

Now i have been 3 months as a volunteer in Klubs "Māja" and in Latvia. That time has been one of the most intense one in my life, this i can say for sure! Right now i am teaching estonian (greetings to all of the students - you are great!), giving photo lessons in Rigas Estonian school (for Latvian kids who speak perfect estonian! Amazing!), visiting schools to talk about EU, EVS and Estonia. At the same time we (Tobi and I) have some side tasks, like organizing different events and projects.
