About Mentoring
Hello Kamacho! How are you? I hope all is ok, I’m perfect here in the South of Naples, there are a lot of things to do, and now with the activities of the project – the italian lessons…Idon’t have time to send you emails or letters! Sorry! I’m sure that you can forgive me. I don’t know how to start… But probably today is a good day to talk to you about one very interesting activity with our mentor in which all of my mates participated, me includedof course. This is the the mentoring time, and we do some activities with the main objective to get to know each other better. Our mentor explained us some activities that we had to do, in pairs, or in teams, for example, the last monday afternoon, we had to present each other to all the group. We didn’t talk a lot about the each other because we have lived together just for two weeks, it’s not enough time, so it is too soon to know any information about the others. However, at the end of the activity we knew a lot of things about the others mates!!! In an other activity, each of us had to write six sentences about ourselfs.  Then, our mentor had to read the information in public to the others mates and we had to guess which one was the person that the mentor was talking about. At the end, we did some activities together in pairs with the main objective – understanding that we can do a lot of things if we work in a team. In order to do so, we have to work like one. In a team and not like individual persons. For sure this kind of activities will be very usefull in the dynamics of the MARE group, and our lives. I hope to talk with you soon man! Visit me soon!
