History is an important aspect of culture, Bulgaria being an excellent case in point with its more than 13 centuries of glory and downfall. On the first day of the exchange in Stara Zagora three 9-graders, Mihaela, Zhaneta and Greta, gave a ppt presentation on bulgarian-history to their foreign partners and then conducted a quiz on the most important events and figures in Bulgarian historical development.
Of course, no school exchange would be complete without a prezi on school culture, i.e. Romain-Rolland-Foreign-Language-School. We come from different educational systems and it was important for our guests to get a taste of what it takes for a student at Romain Rolland FLS to do well academically – with its more than 1100 students, bilingual profile and two study shifts, the school is a typical example of a language school with its rigorous curriculum and strong emphasis on academic achievement. Slavena, Damyan, Yordan, Suzana and Raditina did a great job of talking about some peculiar items of our school culture such as “a register” and “a mark book”, to name a few.
