I chose Guarda because they recommended the city to study, because we are going to work a lot and the city is small and it’s good to be here. [+]

Hi, I’m Violeta and I come from Valencia. I am studying Industrial Design at Politecnica de Valencia and I’m in fourth grade. I chose Guarda because they recommended the city to study, because we are going to work a lot and the city is small and it’s good to be here.

As for expectations: to meet many people, many Portuguese and learn to speak Portuguese.

My name is Pavel. I come from Poland. In Poland I studied at the University of Lodz and now I study here. I chose Guarda because I thought it would be a more peaceful, calm, place, because I don’t like big, noisy cities. Here I want to gain knowledge and learn Portuguese.

Paluxo

My name is Paluxo and I came from Guinea-Bissau. I just enrolled in the Master of Health Applied Science. I chose this master’s because I have already done a technical course in health inspection and sanitation in Guinea and I need more knowledge in the area. I hope it is good because it’s a new reality. Between there in Guinea and here, the education systems are very different. I want to learn everything that will be taught here.
