Testimonials

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what people say:

I met fantastic people at work and I’ve learned a lot. Now my English is better and even learned some basic Portuguese. I met a different culture and visit a lot of
places like the Guimarães Castle and the beautiful city Barcelos. Every evening we went to the ocean and admire the sunset. The Erasmus Plus project is a great experience and I hope in the future to come back here.

Ola K. and Ola S.

Participants from Poland

This project helped us to make a lot of friends and to learn a lot of things about our profession field of Tourism. We get experience that will help us in the future. We discovered new cultures, traditions, food, stories and unforgetable places. Another great thing about this project is the possibility to learn English at a higher level and even the chance to learn some basic words in Portuguese.

Andrei and Madalina

Participants from Romania

When I came here I was scared about how would I interact with new people but now I can say that these ‘people’ are my new friends. I am in love with the traditions and places that I got the chance to know. Making part of Mobility Friends helped me discover new opportunities for my future. I would encourage young people like me to participate in these kind of Erasmus+ projects.
