Tatiana Shilova, the Russian teacher: "All the activities represented in this project were an example of “how it is better to do” in Entrepreneurship education. The students not only acquired knowledge of the subject, learnt how to work in teams to discuss and overcome the problems, but also got to know a lot about another culture and style of life. Thank you for the opportunity to take part in such useful project."
