53 Sweden Joseph Rimmer-1

My name is Joe and I went on the Sweden project.
During my time here, i have been able to work with a range of different people from different backgrounds, teaching them about our culture and learning about there’s through questions and quiz games.
In my free time we have been doing a range of different activity’s, including snowmobiling, cross country skiing, feeding reindeers and ice skating.
Thanks to Erasmus+ I have been able to learn a lot about the Swedish culture. I have had many opportunity’s to work with different cultures that will benefit me in the future.
Personally I feel I have became more confident working with others and improved on my teaching skills from working with the  scouts and school kids.

52 Sweden Shane Blaylock-1

My name is Shane Blaylock, I’m 17 years old.
I went on a project in Sweden to do a 2 week experience doing winter sports. Also I have never been overseas before so I was very excited to fly.
During my project, I have experienced things that are nearly impossible to do in England, I have gained confidence in new skills such as ice skating, cross country skiing and reindeer farming. I also got to know Swedish people my age by going into their schools and talking to them, comparing Sweden to England.
In my free time, I really enjoying learning how to ice skate. Skiing is something I’d never thought I’d do and I’ve really enjoyed doing it.
Thanks to Erasmus+, personally, I have build my confidence in talking to strangers whether it being kids in school or people I’ve bumped into down the shops or an a walk.

Hi my name is Erin. I am 17 and I am from Cumbria.

50 Sweden Kristina Fell-1

I am Kristina, I am 18. I took part in this project to Sweden because it looked an amazing opportunity to embrace new cultures and learn new skills.
During the experience I spent a lot of time in schools developing my personal skills and learning about their culture. I have also done fun activities like snow mobiles, reindeer farming and snow bbq.
In my free time I went for walks in the snow, cooked tea and played pool tournaments.
Personally I have learnt about the Swedish culture and language. How to budget and plan meals. I also worked with refugees from different countries and over came the language barrier.

20 Sweden Ellie Kidd-1

My name is Ellie, I am 17 and I am from the Lake District in England.
During this experience I have learnt lots about Swedish culture including the sports, such as ice hockey, the foods like meatballs and reindeer and the traditions like the Sami people and the Midsummer celebration.
In our free time we did lots of fun and exiting activities such as skiing, husky sledding and snowmobiling. We also had big snowball fights with the local children which as a lot of fun.
Thanks to Erasmus+, professionally I have learnt a lot about communication with others, even despite language barriers. I also learnt about working with children and how to teach them new skills.  Personally the biggest thing I enjoyed was learning a new language which I intend to continue learning after I return home.

19 Sweden Harry Bouch-1

My name is Harry Bouch. I’m 16 years old and I live in a small village in the UK called Kirkoswald.
I wanted to go to Sweden to see the difference in cultures and sports because I might want to instruct winter sports later on in life.
The project: We are into Swedish schools and learning about their culture, life style and history and how this is different to the UK. We have been into two different schools: a secondary school and 6th form. We have helped run scout activities for a Swedish group of children ages 8-10 and also worked on a reindeer farm for some Sami farmers.
In my free time I have done cross country skiing, snowball fights, swimming, snowmobiling, sledging, walking, dog sledging and ice skating. Me favourite was dog sledging because my Dad breeds sheep dogs and I enjoyed discovering how they train their dogs differently.
I have learnt how I can be independant.

They all seemed to have a great experience out there, developing skills in sport coaching at IDEUM.
