It’s time to prepare the second Language Picnic, for the time to come we started to prepare different things, it’s an event where culture as well as ideas and languages from different countries are shared among the population of Pultusk and whoever wants to come close to the fountain in the main square to get to know the experiences of the different members of it.
It started at 16:00 giving time to everyone to rest after the lunch and go there full of energy to improve their knowledge about interesting things that we are happily sharing, the first 15 minutes there was almost no one, but as the time was passing more and more people were gathering there, sitting in the different blankets we had prepared according to their preferences and changing from one to another as they were knowing that they wanted of the different countries, in this case we had Spain, Korea, Hungary and France, as well as an international one for English.
Different things that were teaching in the different blankets were language twistters, basics of every language and history and culture from the countries, we had as well several games that were play with the people assisting there, also people from Pultusk and other parts of Poland that happen to be there that day were sharing their experiences with us as well.
In the peak of the afternoon we were around 20 people, so it was quite acceptable, and the ideas were flowing from one way to another, people were laughing and enjoying the time with the volunteers and even talking about going somewhere after the picnic ends.
There weren’t only blankets and people, there was as well lemonade for the visitors, fruits and candies, to pleasure everyone that wanted to pass by, almost everything was finished at the end of the Picnic so it was quite a success, and after that things were putting again in the cars and volunteers along with the locals of Pultusk went to have a drink in a pub close to the place
But it was nothing but the beggining of the language picnic, there was Spanish, Korean and Hungarian food prepared in the volunteers flat welcoming the people to sing in different languages and to play different games if they didn’t have enough with the picnic, as it only last two hours. At least 15 people were reunited in the place, enjoying the end of the day and telling to us that for sure they were going to come to the next one. We will look foward to it.
