What do you imagine when you go through your notes from your personal journal? What are you thinking about?
That I know a lot about India
Everything we did
Almost nothing, I almost do not remember what we did
That it was entertaining, educational, interesting
Interesting classes with an interesting program, international project
That I did not know that much and now I do know
That I got to know lots of new things about India
I am trying to imagine how their lessons go, whether they are as loud as ours. Whether they communicated the same way as we did
That these lessons were quite interesting. Athough in some moments they were not interesting for me, but then I got used to it and I started to
That these lessons are perfect
I remember the lessons, what we did and I also remember the experience
I found out a lot and I enjoyed the lessons
These were good lessons, but those activities were quite strange
How do they live and what are they doing right now
That this project is wonderful and that we get to know many different things
That I liked these lessons and that it will certainly help us get to know Ladakh better
I enjoy the indian lessons and I am happy that I can learn something about India
Did these lessons differ from other lessons you have had regularly? If so, how exactly did they differ?
We communicated more, the lessons were looser
Yes, that we kept talking
They were interesting, different than the school lessons
Yes, they were looser and more entertaining
Yes, we did different things so it was a little bit more entertaining than a normal Czech lesson
Yes, it was more entertaining and we had a chance to learn something about India
Yes, interesting. Subject-wise, we know what we are going to do upfront
Yes, we were allowed to be on PC
Yes, a majority was looser and we used more entertaining ways, than just sitting, listening, testing and taking notes
Yes. They were somehow looser and more entertaining. We had fun. The only thing it that it would feel much better if we could choose our teams
alone and not according to the month we were born.
Yes. During the normal lessons we can not walk.
Yes. Most of the time, but not always, we have the lessons in style: 'open your book and read the following...And now you open your notebooks,
the heading is...' And they dictate the entry. These Indian lessons were more like a debate, and I think this is good. I liked them, but
unfortunately, our class is not able to be quiet during such lessons.
They were totally different, we do not take it (lessons) as fun
Yes, they were better
Yes, we talked about India
Yes, they are different. We are finding out about children in India and what do we have in common with them
Yes, they were different because they were more entertaining
Yes, we often work in groups, we communicate more and we are getting closer with others, we do not do it normally in common lessons
Certainly yes. Indian lessons are entertaining and I can learn something not only about India, but also about my classmates. The normal lessons
are often only about that we have to learn something - not fun.
Certainly yes. They were different, that we don't speak correctly for instance
Yes. We did not have classes.
Yes. They were different as we worked in groups and did not have to sit all the time
They were different. During the normal lessons we learn, but in these lessons we found out about Ladakhi people, we worked in groups and this
is something we do not do during normal lessons.
They were looser, we learned about Ladakh in an entertaining way and by playing. In fact these were not classes.
Of course it is clear, that it is different. In the lessons about Ladakh we learn in a more entertaining way and we actually learn something.
Other lessons are boring...And I also think that the lessons about Ladakh are more pleasant for everyone.
Mention three of the most important things that learned about India/Ladakh:
Buddhism, similar as in the Czech republic

I do not know
I am not bright
Do not be selfish
I speak english quite well
I am not humble
I enjoy talking about it
That I do enjoy such a way of learning and such things in general very much
We must not judge before we learn something more about someone else
I do not recognize the person at first instance but after I get to know him/her more
I have started to think about the people differently. I do not judge the way they look, I wait how they are going to talk to me
That most of the time we judge people according the way they look and that is not always good
That we should not be judging things we know nothing about. Not even the people
I should not be judging things only according to colour
To work in a team
That I know how to work in a team
We do not as badly
I am proud that I am a student of this school
