Ahoj!!  Volám sa Valerio, mám 24 rokov. Ja som z Talianska. Ja som dobrovoľnik v Kericu. I arrived in Cadca on January, the 10th and i'm here to share happy and nice moments of life, doing several and interesting things like teaching italian and english to children and people until 30 years old!

Ahoj!! J Volám sa Dalibor, mám 19 rokov. Ja som z Macedónska. Ja som dobrovoľnik v Kericu. I will be here in Keric - Čadca, Slovakia for 12 months teaching English for children and teenagers and i will try to help in Keric with everything that i can. Usually i want to spend my spare time with my closest friends and family no matter how we‘ll spent it.

Ahoj!!

My name is Valentina. I`m from Italy. I`m a university student, I graduated in March with a degree in Psychology and I intend to continue my studies in September.
I decided to work as an EVS volunteer because I was searching for an experience that could give me something more than the books and could be useful for my personal development.
I wished to get to know another culture and another way of life, to learn new things and I wanted to give my energy and my capacities at the same time.
I can tell you that this experience has exceeded my expectations….
I`m really happy to be here!!

 

Som Angela z Južného Talianska. Skončila som univerzitu a teraz sa chcem učiť slovenčinu a angličtinu .. strenúť nových ľudí.. spoznať tradície a kultúru, tejto prekrásnej krajiny.. počas 6 mesiacov budem pracovať v skanzene vo Vychylovke. KERIC je super a myslím si, že to bude výborná skúsenosť.

I´m Angela from Southern Italy (pizza, spaghetti, caffé...goog...very good.I finished my univerity studies and now I want to learn Slovak and English....meet people...know tradition and culture of this beautiful country...for this in the next 6 months i will work at the Vychlovka Museum... Dobre :) Keric is wonderful and i think it will be a good experience...Now I´m going... Ciao... Have a nice day :)

 

 Ahoj ! Ja se volam Joffrey, som z Francuzka a mam 20 rokov. Yes, I did it: a sentence in Slovak!!! I am really sorry but it will be the only one! So, I am in KERIC for 10 months to accomplish my European Voluntary Service. In France, I studied at the university during 3 years and I wanted to change my life, to discover a new country with a new culture and to meet new people: EVS is the perfect mean and Slovaquia the perfect place for that! And KERIC gives me the possibility to teach English and French to children, so I think it will be a rewarding experience! Cau!

Ahoj! Dovol’te, aby som sa predstavil. Ja som Lucille a mám dvadsat’dva rokov. Som z Británia. Študovala som na univerzite za Edinburgh. I’m originally from Darlington in North-East England. I graduated this summer from Edinburgh University with a degree in German and Philosophy. Four years at university sounds like a long time but time has a habit of flying by without you really noticing and so this summer I found myself at the end of my studies without being sure what to do next. When I heard of EVS I really felt that was something that would suit me. EVS gives you a wonderful chance to live abroad, gain work experience and meet new people – I just wasn’t sure which project to go on. Then I heard of KERIC and the work they were doing. The mixture of close contact with the local community through teaching, participating in various workshops, and working with a thoroughly mixed group of international volunteers really appealed to me. Previously I hadn’t considered moving to Slovakia but the more I found out about the country the more it intrigued me. The opportunity to learn a completely different language was something else that tempted me to this project. So here I am at the beginning of my time at KERIC leading my first English lessons and speaking my first words of Slovak and most importantly looking forward to the adventures this year has in store for me.

Ahojte!! Ja sa volam Eva a som z Rakuska. Som dobrovolnička v Kericu. I decided to do EVS because it is a great opportunity to discover a lot about yourself. You find yourself living and working with other volunteers, who have the same motivation to gain new experiences, but at the same time are totally different characters and come from completely different backgrounds. This makes EVS so special to me. Why I chose to come to Slovakia, is an easy question for me, because I was really interested in the project Keric offers. Trying to teach kids, teenagers and adults for the first time is a really exciting challenge. Furthermore I wanted to discover a country I had never been to before. And although Slovakia is a neighbouring country of Austria hardly anyone knows anything about it – so close and similar, and at the same time so different and a totally new world! And so far, I can honestly say, that coming here was a great decision!!  Thanks in advance to everyone, who I am sure, is going to make this a wonderful year!

 
Ahoj, Ako sa mas??? My mother told me that my real name is Raul Garrido, but you can call me, Piki, Manuel Flores, Paiki Zemiak, Peter Kovacik, Paikislav Zemiacovich,Chuan Carlos, or whatever you want, the thing is that i will be here in Cadca per one year, to give you the proper Roack and Rolle...well, Im 81 years old, but I look like little be younger!

 

Well, Im really happy to be here per this year, so i hope that we will meet arround the city...  or in the spanish lessons...

 

Hellooooooo! My name’s Angela, I am 20 and I’m from Italy. What do I like? Eeeeh a lot of things: music, overall. Music everywhere, always, no matter what. And pasta. And pizza. But those have a special place in my heart (obviously). Here, I’m teaching English and Italian in Keric, and during Wednesdays I am in the Korňa’ school, to help out with English lessons. I am here because I didn’t know which university to attend after my high school and because I needed a break from my studies: my sending organization showed me this project and I was like “oh well, why not!”. I’m sure I’ll have a great time here in Čadca (as soon as I manage to pronounce it, that’s it).
 Ahoj!

Volam sa Signe. Som 25 rokov. I come from nice and beautiful country called Latvia. I will stay in KERIC for 1 year. Why I choose to be a volunteer in Slovakia, because of the 3 reasons: 1. I love skiing, 2. In Latvia I heard a lot of good things about Keric and people here 3. I wanted to change my life and gain other life experience.
2 days per week I am in Keric where I am teaching english for children (age 4-6). 3 days per week I am in Skalite (small village, approx.17 km from Cadca) at school, where I am helping children in Math and English.
First weeks are full of many impressions, but I have to say that they are only good impressions and I already love Slovakia!!!!
