We arrived at school at 9 am and we gathered in the classroom. We sat down in our seats and were handed our name tags and weekly schedule. We split into two groups and started the school tour. The first thing we visited were the classrooms. We then headed towards the second structure of the school. Here we visited the dormitories. These cost €8 a month. After that, we walked to the chemistry class, where we could witness various experiments such as hand temperature measurement, microscope viewing, and metal burning. All very interesting. After we headed to the gymnasium where we could play a game of volleyball for about 30 minutes.
After this they showed us the recreation room, here too we were able to try all the activities present. We then headed to the cinema. It is not a cinema like the others. It’s a 7D cinema. We were able to watch a short film with all the special effects. After watching the film we went back to our classroom and had a break with coffee and snacks. After about 30 minutes we started with the presentations of the entrepreneurs. Each group presented its own presentation. The presentations finished around 13 pm.
For lunch, we went to a famous cafe in the city.

Afterwards, we continued with the presentation of Turkey. The remarkable sentences and fluent English in their presentation get the audience attention without boring them. Portugal team continued the presentations as the third ones. They were confident about themselves and they didn’t forget to made eye contact so with that presentation got even better.
