The first day started at 10 o’clock with team building for both students and teachers. Students had also an opportunity to show some of their physical strength by taking part in games, such as volleyball, golf, American football and many more. After such exhausting activities everybody was kindly requested to taste traditional food prepared by WSGE students. At the end of the day the lottery was held.

The second day was the conference day. Conference on ‘Teaching English in English’ was addressed to students, lecturers and other invited guests. The conference referred to a variety of methods for teaching and learning English and conducting classes in English.
