Goal of the event:
The main goal of the event was to raise awareness by showing international students that communication without any words is possible. Another goal was to reduce stress during exam period.
Short description of the event:
We prepared around 100 phrases and mixed them all in a bowl. Then we met with our Erasmus students at 7 p.m. at Finestra (a local pizzeria/pub). We all sat together and we divided our students in two teams. One member of a team drew a card with a phrase from the bowl. Then he had to show that thing (character, animal, movie, event, sentence) without using words. They were only allowed to use gestures. They quickly invented their own version of sign language. Then if someone from the same team guessed the phrase, the team received one point but if someone from another team guessed it first, the other team got two points. After the event we summed up points and announced the winners.
