Papaya (an ESN matching system) gives you access to many Erasmus Student Network's projects — as Buddy system, Pick-up system, Language tandem — and much more!
BUDDY SYSTEM: The Buddy system is a project that aims to integrate and make feel at home exchange students, from their earliest days in their new cities. Each international student can ask to receive a a local student as a tutor - the Buddy - who will be there to answer his/her questions, to clarify his/her doubts and that will help him/her take his first steps in the new city.
PICK-UP SYSTEM: You are just arrived in your new city, ready for your brand new adventure. And now? Do you need a helping hand to carry the luggages in your new flat? Our pick up system is exactly what you need! We will do our best to find a Buddy who will come and pick you and your luggages up at the train or bus station (or even the airport), taking you then home, safe and sound.
LANGUAGE TANDEM: Do you want to learn or improve another language? We will assign you a tandem partner who speaks the native language that you need! In return, your partner will be interested in the languages you speak so you'll both have the opportunity to improve in front of a coffee or a cup of tea.
