¡Viva España! Og længe leve Erasmus+
Forstil dig, at du får 240.000 kr. kvit og frit til at få en helt masse oplevelser sammen med dine elever. Det gjorde vi!
Jeg har igennem mange år hørt om Erasmus+ – et EU-sponsoreret initiativ til at støtte europæisk samarbejde. I år satte jeg mig for at undersøge det ordentligt, og med stor hjælp fra min viceskoleleder fik vi udfyldt og indsendt de nødvendige ansøgningsformularer til en udvekslingsrejse, og – hokus pokus – nogle få måneder senere stod vi med næsten en kvart million kroner, som vi skulle dele med vores partnerskole i Sevilla. Året før havde jeg startet et e-twinningsprojekt med Manuela og hendes elever. Med så mange penge havde vi råd til at tage begge vores to 8. klasser med (samt firelærere og en viceskoleleder) til Sevilla med alt betalt. (Lidt ironisk og ærgerligt kom jeg ikke selv med på grund af en pludselig hospitalsindlæggelse, lige inden vi skulle afsted).
Vi har netop evalueret udvekslingen med vores elever. Der var 39 elever til stede den dag, og de skulle give mellem 1-5 point, hvor 5 var højest.
Hvordan oplevede du vores uge i Sevilla?
Gennemsnittet lå på 4,13 (83% tilfredshed).

Hvordan oplevede du den spanske familie?
Gennemsnittet var 4,3 (86% tilfredshed).
Vil du anbefale, at vi laver et lignende forløb med næste års 8. klasser?
38 ud af 39 sagde ja.
De blev også spurgt, hvad de synes, var særlig godt. (Eleverne svarede på engelsk, da vi vil dele resultaterne med vores spanske partner).
”I think it was absolutely fantastic, when we arrived in the bus, that all the Spanish people came running with banners towards the bus”
They were so enthusiastic when we came and so incredibly kind when we were with them.
My family were absolutely fantastic. It was great that we all had a long break in the middle of the day, where we could all be together.
This trip has been the BEST trip in my life!
I have seen so much, made new friends, and seen how it´s like to live in Spain. I was so surprised by something. E.g. that they eat cake in the morning? “
Jeg vil også dele nogle af mine elevers logbogsindslag, som de villigt delte ud af. En pige skrev:
When we arrived to the school the Spanish people just started run against the bus! We went home with our new friends and ate dinner. On the trip we did so many things! We were in the big shopping center, we were in Seville and saw the city. In the evening we sometimes went to a park and some of us stayed there and just talked. We had a great time and some of them was so kind and funny. We also went to a smaller shopping center sometimes (just with friends) and then we ate burgerking or something.
This trip have made me learn allot! I have tried to live as another person in another environment with people I don´t know and who doesn´t do as I do. I found out that the danish people were much better at English than the Spanish! All in all this has been something I am never going to forget!!

Back from Seville! I made so many wonderful friends and I´m grateful for that. I miss them so much already! We had English today, and we spoke to Frank about seville. He where really exited to hear our stories. I think that it was one of the best weeks of my entire life, because I learned a lot about myself and my personal boundaries. I think i´ve made friendships that hopefully will last a lifetime. Not only the guys from Spain, but from Denmark as well. This trip I found that Malthe, Julie, Kristoffer and Mia and I had a lot in common. I´ve already spent a lot of time talking to some of my new friends from Seville, Isabel, Victor, Paula and of course Lucia. My best friends from Spain is definetly Isabel, or Isa. She´s so nice and funny, and I enjoy talking to her a lot.

Anyway the last week have been everything. I´m speechless. I don´t think there´s a word for it. It was the best, with up and downs, and we were tired but happy, and we just had so much fun.
And it´s funny to think about how attached we got to each other when we only were there for a week. And I got some awesome Spanish friends who I got really close to, but I got closer to my classmates too. And it feels awesome. It is most certainly one of the best memories I have.
I miss them already, and now I´m just looking so much forward to them arriving here.
Siden rejsen har eleverne gjort flittig brug af sociale medier til at holde kontakt, og vi glæder os meget til at se vores spanske venner i april.
