Summer School in Cambodia
In the year 2017, I have attended Summer School in Cambodia. It was amazing experiment to cooperate with such interesting country as Cambodia. This Summer school called Scientific writing “Step by Step” was completed at the Royal University of Agriculture.
It all started with meeting the students we were going to cooperate for the following 2 weeks. We introduced ourselves and then we had a first lesson about the schedule. The Summer School was about scientific writing, so we got informed about lots of different data processing, quotation processing web pages, which, I personally think, was and is very beneficial for upcoming works such as Bachelor and Diploma thesis.
As Cambodia is a completely different country with completely different standards and traditions, it was also very interesting for us to get to know their culture. Each day was different in some way, as we went deeper and deeper into the culture. Every day we had a different traditional dish, so we got enriched in that as well. Last day of summer school was for me the most magical, because there was a connection between Cambodian and Czech and also Croatian (because 2 students were from Croatia) cultures. We cooked for each other our own traditional dishes, tasted traditional drinks (cashew wine, slivovice, beer…), sang karaoke, danced and just enjoyed each other and life.
So, I am very grateful for this experience because it gave me a lot – big lesson (information gained not only in school) and the taste of their culture was just unforgettable. So, my thanks!
