Getting to know Canada
On 2 November, Esumer received Dave Orellana. Dave is the Liason Officer for South America at the University of Victoria in Canada. Esumer and UVC have been cooperating closely to promote the bilingual ability of their students. Originally from Venezuela, Dave relocated to Canada some years ago. He was able to speak to a classroom of thirty students eager to learn about the opportunities provided by his university. There was a special interest in the English language program, which also offers a home stay with a local family. Students took the initiative to ask questions about the availability of scholarships and life in Canada.
Victoria is the capital of the province of British Columbia and offers a variety of sights and experiences. To those who are interested in studying at the University of Victoria, please contact the Office of International Relations for further information. We invite the entire academic community to take advantage of this offer and participate in the program with our partner institution in Canada.
“Live it up with Germany”
In continuing with its newfound tradition of advancing internationalization, Esumer was happy to host Klaus Freigang on 9 November 2016. Klaus is a personal friend of one of the current interns at the university and was in Colombia for a visit. During his time in the country, he was able to moderate a small event about German culture with the administrative staff at Robledo.
Attended by more than 20 of the staff and lasting over an hour, Klaus prepared a list of questions about Germany for a friendly competition. Staff members were treated to the traditional German snack currywurst (boiled sausage with a curry tomato ketchup) while competing for their prizes: three types of imported German beer (Weizen – “white/wheat beer”, Schwarz – “black beer” and Alt – “old/lager beer”). At the end there was also an award for the person best dressed in the colors of the German flag.
Minerva, our colleague from AIESEC in Mexico
Hello! My name is Minerva Hernández, I´m Mexican and 22 years old. I studied International Commerce and Customs and am currently doing a profesional internship at Esumer. Part of my duties is to support the Faculty of Business and Market Studies and breeding grounds for research. This is for a period of four months, at which time I will conclude my degree.
Before beginning the internship, I had the choice between Puerto Rico and Colombia. After some research on each country, I chose Medellín without a second thought. Medellín is the most innovative city in the world, has a pleasant climate, but above all, the happiest people in the world live here. I love it!
While this is my first international experience, I have had the opportunity to know all of Mexico. That is due to the fact that my parents are anthropologists and travel a lot. I owe my taste for travel to them.
I have only spent two months in Colombia, but I love it as much as my own country.
Mexico is a country located in the southern part of North America, shares borders with the United States, Guatemala and Belize. It has coasts on the Pacific Ocean, Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean. The oficial name is the United States of Mexico. It has a democratic, federal form of government.
It consists of 31 states and a Federal District. The capital, Mexico City is located in the Federal District. Mexico is the third largest country in terms of land in Latin America. According to the INEGI, the population is up to 121 million inhabitants.
According to the World Tourism Organization, Mexico is the main destination in Latin America and the tenth most visited in the world. This is due to the existence of thirty two natural and cultural sites considered by UNESCO as World Heritage sites.
Mexico is recognized for being a culturally rich nation, full of stunning destinations to see. The country contains the largest number of speakers of indigenous languages and dialects, with over 65 living languages registered in 2014.
In Mexico, we are very festive. Any occasion is the perfect pretext to celebrate and spend time with family and friends. We celebrate the most conventional to mundane things; whether our national team wins a match or it is the Day of Love and Friendship, Day of the Dead, Independence Day, etc. There are special days dedicated mothers, fathers, women, children, lawyers, hairdressers, blacksmiths, nurses and more. We celebrate absolutely everything!
