Mobility to Namur: Impressions by Ana from Croatia

I had a great time in Namur thanks to a well-organized schedule and the warm hosting.
What I admired at the mobility was practising English skills, meeting new people and hanging out with them, learning about different cultures and enjoying the beautiful historical places of Namur.
It was quite challenging since we had to speak English for one entire week with people from different countries and different cultures. Although there were some language barriers, I found it useful to encourage myself to explain to my colleagues what I wanted to say. Despite that, we were successful in communicating with each other, learning and having fun during the whole week.
Moreover, we had the opportunity to learn different aspects when starting up a business. We met professionals from several fields – finance, graphic and design, marketing and consultants. They did not hesitate to help us and highlight all the details that we should look up if starting up a business. At the meeting with professionals, we had to present our ideas and use all the presentation skills practised during the BEATS lessons while speaking in formal English.
Besides visiting the beautiful city of Namur and spending one week in Belgium, colleagues and hosts are the main reason for making this mobility special. We came back home richer not only with new connections, bus also friendships.
