Our first month in Blagoevgrad

For the first week we were trying to learn the city of Blagoevgrad. After accommodating to the city, and getting to know the people in it, we felt more comfortable as time went by. Our first “task” was to make short introduction videos about ourselves, which you can find on our website.

Every Thursday we are going to the Chat Club, the place where the volunteers from Blagoevgrad meet. If you come there, you can meet a lot of different people from different countries, and make new friends. We have weekly topics for the Chat Club, playing different games, presenting something, learning about something, or just talk among each other.

After doing some office work, we went to one of Blagoevgrad high schools with purpose to ask high school kids if they would be interested in some after school activities that will be in English language. Point of the class would be improving your English to go along with relaxing and having fun. The Headmaster of the school was kind enough to give us one classroom, and on this Thursday, we started our first lesion of many.

Last week, we started working on GoDigital project, a project made to provide primary school teachers some basics about parts of computer, solving the computer problems, and getting more comfortable using the newer technology in their teaching environment.

Our first month went by very fast, it was very interesting and exciting, and we can’t wait to see what next month brings, in terms of work and having fun!
