As the teacher of this wonderful group of students who, back in 2008, helped me connect with students and teachers worldwide, and to explore ICT tools to integrate many of them into my classes almost 5 years ago, I am pleased to say that thanks to the many requests I've had from so many people in different countries, I will be re-opening doors and allow them in: together we can do so much more!!!!

How many members in this wonderful international group are willing to keep communication alive even when our 2008 CAE course has come to its end...?
It would be great to go on being in contact, participating in discussions, allowing everybody to share experiences and ideas on topics we could all suggest, using English!
I'm willing to receive your positive answers, and do hope they are many!!
Best wishes from Rosario,

Do the names MySpace, Facebook, Orkut, etc. ring a bell? They probably do because they are some of the most popular sites on the internet today. These sites are all called 'social networking' sites because they help people meet and discuss things online. Each of these social networking sites has its own strengths: MySpace is especially popular among teenagers, Facebook is popular with college age people, Orkut is especially loved in Brazil, and CyWorld is the site to… Continue

The World's Toughest Exam
Rather than take the final then, they decided to find their professor after the final and explain to him why they missed the exam.
At Georgia Tech (we've also heard this from Duke), there were four sophomores taking Organic Chemistry. They did so well on all the quizzes, the mid-terms and labs, etc. that each had an "A" so far for the semester. These four friends were so confident that the weekend before the finals, they decided to go up to the… Continue

Eliot Dardy, who was a student of round 54, said that it is not that important to reach a high-ranked university in France. According to his essay, university is “a path to culture and science much more than just a highway to social and money success.” However, it is very different in Korea. In Korea, it is still important to attend a high-ranked university. To have their children to enter a high-ranked university, parents spend a lot of money to let their children have private lessons and… Continue

Food, clothing and shelter are human’s basic needs. However among these what is the most necessary factor for our life.

And even more foods can be tourist attractions. In my essay I want to find out different foods and think about the reasons of the divergence.
First, let have a look at the material they… Continue
