An old joke says:
Heaven is where the cooks are French, the police are British, the mechanics are German, the lovers are Italian and everything is organized by the Swiss.
Hell is where the cooks are British, the police are German, the mechanics are French, the lovers are Swiss, and everything is organized by the Italians.
(And, by the way, do you know what they say about Czechs? Nothing. Because nobody outside the Central Europe actually knows who Czechs are.)
Let’s break such national stereotypes and prejudices! And let’s do it in a funny, entertaining and interactive way in a friendly atmosphere with your new mates from all over the world!
Every Wednesday evening you’ll have an opportunity to get to know new countries with their cultures, the habits of their lovely people, perhaps their food or beverages. Besides all, you’ll have a unique chance to prove that your country is the best and that it’s worth visiting (or moving to)!
The way you choose to present your country is totally up to you. The point is to show the others where you come from and make them feel like they’re a part of the presented country. Please make sure your presentation won't have more than 20 minutes, we are here not for geography studies.
Why would you like to do that?
• Firstly, we are sure that you would like to amaze your friends with an interesting trivia that they can’t google or find in books.
• Secondly, we know that you are eager to get to know how they dine or dress up or party on other continents.
Having these in minds, we can guarantee you 90 minutes of fun, laughter and interesting stuff.
And the best thing – to motivate you to really pull this off, we prepared a prize for the group with the best country presentation! The best group will get a KEG OF BEER (for a quality beer pong game or just host the others on another „friendly evening“).
We start with the presentation of the Czech Republic on February 22nd!
And then, the first presentation day will be on March 1st (for more details check the schedule). You will be reminded several times, but please, countries supposed to present on this day, make sure that you’re ready.
Take your ESNcard with you (to not to pay an entrance fee) and bring some friends (even without the ESNcard they can participate in country presentations, just for a small entrance fee of 20 CZK).
In order to get refunded for the shopping after your Country Presentation, come to our office with the stamped receipt (no later than 2 weeks after your presentation) or contact our treasurer at firstname.lastname@example.org and make an appointment.
