"I am Gaëlle, an Erasmus student from France. I am studying Business Administration at the School of Business Administration in Karviná for one semester. I have selected 9 subjects which are: “Intercultural Communication”, “Introduction to the Czech Language and Culture”, “Managerial skills”, “Marketing”, “Personal Development Skills for Mobilities”, “Principles of Finance”, “Professional English”, “Project Management” and “Small and Medium-Sized Entrepreneurship”. I try to be involved as much as possible: I am part of the international team at “Business Gate”. We are working on a marketing project for the company “Iglou”. The SBA in Karviná organizes a lot of events for international students such as the Erasmus Day and International Student Seminar.
Thanks to the localisation of Karviná, we can travel to some beautiful and big cities such as Brno, Ostrava, and Olomouc which are near. Indeed, Karviná is a small town near to the border with Poland, so we have had the opportunity to go to Cieszyn during the Erasmus trip. I have also assisted in several sports matches (football and handball matches) in Karviná. In this town, there is also a possibility to do some fitness training and to play bowling. We went to Ostrava, which is only 30 minutes away by train, to see a hockey match. In this city, there is also a possibility to go climbing, to play laser-game and to do plenty of other activities.
There is a very good ambience in the dormitory between the Erasmus and Czech students. We play volleyball, handball and football together. There are also some parties like “Halloween Party” where we can enjoy the Czech student life."
