The main purpose of this trip was the improvement of digital competences and language skills through movie-making and the production of the final short movie which would highlight the similarities and the differences on European cultural elements. Students would tackle social issues and put emphasis on fundamental values. Thus, all the students had shooted at their countries and brought to Debrecen short videos for food, music and architecture from their places. They shared their opinions on common and different elements and they worked all together in order to edit and post product the one single movie which would unite the European counties under the guidance of a video specialist, Pál Puskás. The students enhanced practical skills related to film-making, developed creativity, critical thinking, communication and interpersonal skills and improved the level of English. The team members were warmly hosted by the Deputy Mayor, Mr. dr István Puskás, and the Headmaster, Mr. Józef Fekete, of the Medgyessy Ferenc Gimnázium, Muvészeti Szakgimnazium és Technikum. They were guided around the school and the city of Debrecen. They had also the opportunity to travel to Budapest, where they visited the Castle of Buda, the Parliament, the historical centre of Budapest and even enjoyed a guided cruise on the River Danube. Moreover, they visited the Unesco World Heritage Old Village of Hollokö and admired the unique architecture of the 67 houses and outbuildings.
