According to the application form it was important to evaluate the program regularly. After each visit the students evaluated many factors like e.g: the program, the group relationship, the travel arrangement and the accommodation. It is very important to know the student’s opinion and try to do better during the next visit.
During the visit to Iceland the students were asked to evaluate the program in whole. They worked in mixed groups and got the question: “What have we achieved in the project” and were asked to connect their answers to; culture, geography, communication, language skills, the topic of the project and if they would have something else in mind.
The last days of each semester the participants had an individual conversation with their teachers where the participation in whole was evaluated. The outcome of the conversation gave the teacher similar result as in the common work after the second visit. With a very few exceptions all the participants were very satisfied with the project in whole and wouldn’t have missed this experience. Many of them mentioned they have improved their language skills and learned a lot about foreign culture and how to deal with to move into “a new” family and be a part of it for a few days. Many also told they have learned a lot about the UN goals and the importance of tackling climate change.
It is possible to see a few example of the students evalutaion here below:
