PREPARING FOR THE TOPIC OF THE PROJECT
Most of the time, before the project starts, you will be asked to do some research on a certain topic regarding the situation in Romania and prepare a little presentation.
In our opinion, the most important aspect is to work together with the other participants. Divide the tasks as fair as possible, so that no one does all the work and the others do nothing. More important than the excitement of visiting a new country is the active participation in the project.
While doing the research, try to find trustworthy sources and try to include the right pictures. Nothing’s worse than a presentation where every slide is filled just with text!
