10 years being ERASMUS+

Ten years ago we sent our first Erasmus students on an adventure, but it wasn't only an adventure for them, it was also for us, the ones that stayed behind making sure that their experience was going well and being their homebase in case something went wrong.

We can definitely say that the beginnings weren't easy: the administrative work in order to be and Erasmus+ institution, looking for companies that would welcome our students during three months to do practice work, but also to advise them in any doubts they could have about living in that foreign country, and so many more hurdles...

We are happy to say that, in one way or another, we have been able to send students to many different countries: Ireland, the UK, North Macedonia, Czech Republic, Poland, Croatia, Estonia... And we are getting ready to collaborate on a whole other level with other institutions.

In addition, we cannot forget to mention that the Erasmus+ programme not only has enriched the experiences of our students while doing their practice work abroad, it has also been an opportunity for us teachers. Firstly, because we have had to keep in mind that the learning process has to contemplate the global world and society we live in, but also it has allowed some of us to travel and see how other places work and what we can learn from them.

In conclusion, we are overjoyed with how these 10 years been part of the ERASMUS+ programme have made us improve ourselves, and we cannot wait to see what the next 10 years have in store for us!

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE EP JAVERIANA ON THIS ACHIEVEMENT!


WELCOME BACK!





Our ERASMUS+ students are back in Spain!

They have come back sharing their experiences in Poland, Estonia, Ireland and the UK. After almost three months we have no doubt that they have improved both their professional skills as well as personally.

The students from Grado Superior had to demonstrate their improvement while presenting their final projects completely in English.

They have shown that these three months have been well exploited. Not only their speaking has advanced leaps and bounds; they have also shown how working in a different environment has made them think outside of the box and present very interesting projects.

We hope that their experience doesn't stay as a fond memory, but that they will use those skills learnt all their life.

IRELAND...🍀

Manuel and Miguel, our Erasmus students from Gestión Administrativa (Administration Assistant) are on their way back to Spain after three months of practice work in Dublin.

It has been difficult for us to finally get pictures of them enjoying this experience, it seems that they are a bit camera shy... But have finally received some awesome pictures!

WELCOME TO BILINGUAL FP!


Some months ago, our students from Transport and Logistics decided to record a video promoting our school. Specifically, why being learning English is fun in the Escuela Profesional Javeriana and why being bilingual is a challenge but we are learning a lot because of it.






We are the first bilingual FP school in the BEDA programme, it has been hard work, put we are very proud of what we have accomplished because of it. 



Last year the class of 2018 of International Trade was the first bilingual promotion ever at our school. This year, the class of 2019 of Administration and Finance is going to be the first bilingual promotion of this Degree. In between 2018 and 2019 three classes will have finished their bilingual degrees and we are very proud of them for believing that they could do it and proving that it is possible!

The ERASMUS experience 2019


Our ERASMUS students are writing back telling us how their experience is going!

From Bradford, England Viviana and Paula have a lot to tell us!
























Hello everyone!



Living here has been a great experience not just because is our first time living alone, it's everything, how culture changes here: things like meals or bedtime are different from Spain so Paula and I had to adapt our time to sleep or eat (also entertainment) to UK time. I'm comfortable working for the Chamber International.

The company is comfortable, the people in the office are very kind and they always have patience when we don't know how to do things, also they are very friendly and chatty, our boss Tim, always includes us in meetings, projects, training courses to improve our skills and also wants us to know how the company works in international trade. We also have our own projeect here they are trying help us with everything.



I've visited a few places since I've been here, York, Leeds, a few places in Bradford like the shopping center, pubs, the library, there are here a lot of restaurants!!, Indian and Lebanese food here is incredible.



Two days ago I went to Leeds for our training course and it's a nice place!!! 






Adrián and Lucía are going to tell us how Poland is treating them!




Hello!
The experience in Poland is being fantastic. When you finish your studies it is a good time to complete your training in another country. You can learn about other cultures and other working methodologies, and obviously you feel how your English improves little by little.
All of these are essential to be more polyvalent in the future.

Everything here is good, these four weeks have been very interesting, it was easy to adapt to the company and meet people at work because we are nine students with an Erasmus+ scholarship and all of them are kind and young people. Poznan in a fantastic city for students because there are a lot of universities and the atmosphere in the beautiful streets is very nice.

I am living in a student's residence and I have met a great amount of people there, Italian, Spanish and Chinese too, my neighbour of the next room, Hun Loo, is from there. I think that next month is going to be amazing.




Finally, Andrés, who is in Estonia is telling us about his experience:

Hello!!

My name is Andres and I'm doing my Erasmus in Tallinn, Estonia. My experience here didn't start as I expected, this country is so quiet and chill and people seem cold from my point of view, however the city centre has a lot of amazing places where you can visit them and have fun to meet new people. Their natural parks are amazing when we have good weather. The place where I've been working is one of the best places in Tallinn. The people that are working here are friendly and and don't hesitate to help when you need them to.

Sara recommends...

Hi everyone, my name is Sara and I'm studying Transport and Logistics.



I would like to recommend to attend a Language Exchange.

A language exchange is two or more people who speak different languages practicing each other's language. It is a very practical and fun method to learn languages. You will learn English while you meet people from different countries!

If I had to choose a place in Madrid to do it, it would be The James Joyce Irish Pub (C/ Alcalá, 59), they do it every Monday at 20:30. What are you waiting for?

Álvaro recommends...

¡Greetings! I´m Álvaro Fernández, Student of Transport & Logistics at Javerianas. I have been learning English since I was a kid, but I have never been abroad. I have just only watched how the US or the UK English is in the movies or videogames, or on TV. One thing I love about English is that you enjoy more variety of things and content made for English-speaking people, such as videos, movies, series...       
- I recommend at first watching series or videos with low content of vocabulary. -- Videogames are also a nice choice, since it´s something you can replay all the time without getting bored.

- Studying the irregular verbs list is also very helpful.

- When it comes to series, I recommend watching "angry kid", skits made with a clay-like animation about a redhead kid and his everyday routine. Low content of vocabulary, but very entertaining and original.
