Erve Lubangi (the Democratic Republic of the Congo): “Everything was very interesting! I enjoyed the “KAHOOT!” Competition most of all. The questions were surprising and fun.  I also liked the competition ‘Guess the National Dance’. We had a lot of fun spending time together. It was very pleasant to dance altogether holding hands. It helped us to feel like a part of a numerous and united student family of Polotsk State University”.

Yannik Kabela (the Democratic Republic of the Congo): “The most entertaining and amusing competition was ‘KAHOOT!’. I had much fun! We want to have such a competition again, we all really enjoyed it. One more exciting competition was ‘Guess Who’s This’. We were to ask questions to figure out who was in the picture. I remembered all the questions I’d been asked. This helped me in mastering Russian. We are looking forward to the next GURU Club meeting”.
