The Faculty of Language Studies, Translation and Communication (FFTiC)  presented the Second International Conferences Two Days in Europe  the days 8 and 9 April 2014 Issues related to the Erasmus exchange programme and placements abroad were dealt with during these two days. Attendants had the opportunity to attend explicative talks and could listen to the  incoming  and  outgoing Erasmus Students’ experiences, who recounted their experiences first-hand and gave them the clues of this stage.

The inaugural conference of these conferences, the   First Day in Europe  (8 April), was delivered by Borja Vilaseca, author of ‘Encantado de conocerme’ (Nice to Meet Me), ‘El Principito se pone la corbata’ (The Little Prince Ties Up his Tie),  ‘El sinsentido común’  (The Common Nonsense) and  ‘Qué harías si no tuvieras miedo’ (What would you do if you were not frightened?) and frequent contributor of the Spanish Newspaper ‘El Pais’.
 
There were practical workshops in the evenings in where the questions addressed in the morning’s conference were strengthened. The evening of the Tuesday was focused on the  incoming Erasmus students' experiences and in the presentation of the University of Bulgaria, as well as their students.
 
In order to close the conference   ‘The First Day in Europe’  the Babel Music was held,  an activity in which a little introduction to songs and most relevant stages of the countries taking part was made. Then, a kind of karaoke with the most representative song of each country took place.
 
The morning of the   Second Day in Europe  (9 April) was addressed to both work placements abroad and  incoming students  who will undertake their work placements during their stay at the FFTiC. We also count with the outgoing students’ testimony who undertake work placements abroad(1 and 2). Moreover, the Office of International Relations and Participation was introduces (OREiP) (Students’ testimonies 1, 2, 3 and 4).
 
Wednesday’s evening was focused on the good practices and on a workshop about non-verbal language for possible job interviews. To say goodbye we held a Babel Cafenet  (Babel coffee) in which the OREiP-FFTiC invited participants to meet new people, practice languages and to a coffee.
