Objective / Goal of the activity

- Inform young and local students about the mobility opportunities that exist;

- Give the exchange students the opportunity to talk about their own experience of mobility and to leave a mark on the local students;

- Raise local students' interest in becoming an exchange student in the future;

- Promote cultural exchange among local students and exchange students;

- Inform about what is ESN and its aims.


So the semester has already started and you probably think this is the best time ever! What do you think about telling your Erasmus experience to young students in order to motivate them? What do you think about giving them a taste of your hometown, of your language and your culture?

And are you curious about knowing what a portuguese secondary school looks like?

We are talking about Erasmus in Schools! Join us during the #ErasmusDays and take a chance on being an inspiration to the younger generation!

Erasmus in Schools is a nationwide project aimed for all Erasmus students interested in visiting local/nearby schools during their stay in Portugal.

Enjoy this opportunity where you’ll get the chance to teach and tell Portuguese children about your home country, answer their questions and play games about the Erasmus programme with them.
But how can you do this?
- You can show pictures, objects and whatever you want from your hometown.
- Be creative! The idea is for the kids to learn about your culture and experience  

Most kids at that age already speak pretty good English here in Portugal, but just in case there will always be ESNers helping you out and translating everything.

You can sign up in pairs or by yourself, although we can imagine it will be a funnier activity to do together. You don't have to be from the same country though!

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us by sending an email to: [email protected]
Are you ready to inspire some kids? :)

Result of the activity

The event had a big variety of activities going on, which was very interesting and dinamic. Our role was to present ESN and some mobility opportunities for young students. The aim was very well acquired, since the young students really appreciated us being there with our exchange students to give their own testimony. Also, it was great to see that the local students already know who we are and what we do. They had some personal mobility experiences to share with us as well and many questions to ask about our exchange students' countries and cultures.
