“It does not matter where a person is from. His human qualities are more important to me,” said Acosh Nyar, a participant of the International Summer School 2018 from Pázmány Péter Catholic University (Hungary).
The future teacher reminds that Hungary has fought against Russia and a number of other countries, but the project helped the Hungarian student understand that politics should not affect human intercourse. Acosh Nyar had enough information about Armenia before her visit. “In the beginning I didn’t want to get in touch with anyone; I thought I would have a good time with the other participants from Hungary, but the atmosphere and the people here helped me interact with foreigners and Armenians."
The Hungarian student was particularly impressed by the visit to Noravank and Cascade. She says it is important when one is given an opportunity to see the place while studying its architecture and history.
On the fifth day of the project, the participants visited Etchmiadzin Cathedral and Ruben Sevak Museum where they got acquainted with personal belongings, documents and manuscripts of the Armenian writer. Later in the day, they visited Vernissage - an open-air market in Yerevan, and strolled through the capital streets.
The participants of the Summer School 2018, which continues at the Aghavbadzor-based educational base of the Pedagogical University, are working in groups and making a brief video footage.
“The video will tell about the ten days spent in Armenia. Each of the participants will tell about his impressions and the most amazing memory of the trip to Armenia,” said Elen Khachatryan, a student of the Faculty of Culture.
