The presentation of the home region was made by gathering materials from local researches on the traditional culture of the partner countries. Each participant had to decide what valuеs from the home region to include and how to present them in front of the partners. The introduction of the home region consisted of five categories: geographical sights; history; national customs; traditional meals; nature. The students selected five components from each category and the components were included in the final products.
