Participants’ commentaries on the conducted workshops (the quality evaluation):
«The whole project encouraged me to respect other people and cultures…»
«We had a chance to express freely and discuss in a friendly atmosphere…»
«Theory and practical work were presented in an extraordinary interesting and relaxed way» «I expected the lectures to be more boring and less creative, and it wasn’t the case with this one. Also, the games and the theory are closely connected with what I work so my expectations were surpassed»
«I felt safe in expressing my attitude, opinion, feelings and that affected the most to my active participation.»
