The Teachers
 

 
The computer and the Internet have helped a lot to make this project become what it is today. Not only did the speed of communication and the amount of information gathered attract the young people involved but they also provided us with a wonderfully dynamic and communicative way to practise the target language. The trip to the USA at the end of the year is a dream our students have cherished for a long time and kept asking me to make come true. Again e-mailing and the Internet were precious when choosing places to visit and getting in contact with the people abroad. 
  
We have put up this homepage hoping to share with you our adventure.
