Post- arrival Orientation
Directly after your arrival (usually in August), all the inbound students meet to prepare for exchange year in Slovakia. Our volunteers will try to explain you the life in Slovakia and will welcome you in your host country. This seminar is sometimes combined with intensive 5 days Slovak language course.
In January or February we meet again to talk about your exchange year so far, about your personal achievements, about the problems you might have experienced and about your plans for the coming months. This meeting is held in form of a skiing camp in very close cooperation with YFU Czech Republic – that means that you can not only learn how to ski, but also you can get to know the students who are living their exchange in Slovakia´s neighbor country (and usually there are more inbound students in Czech Republic than in Slovakia)!
At the end of your experience we organize a last seminar for you. Saying good-bye and going home can be difficult and this seminar is planned to help you to deal with this. This orientation is combined with the preparation orientation for our Slovak students who will go on an exchange year and so you will have the possibility to meet them and talk with them about your year in fluent Slovak!
