Blogging from the Tropics

Blogging from the Tropics is a P2P-EFL-ESL-X project with 39 10th grade (5th form) students (ages 14 to 17) from the Franco-Brazilian school in Sao Paulo.

The level of English is heterogeneous, from lower-intermediate to advanced . The students also speak /write/understand French/Portuguese so although the project is primarily in English, visitors can leave comments in either of these languages.

Our school year goes from February 2006 to December 2006. We have a month for winter holidays in July . We meet 3 times a week for 50 minutes and one of these classes is in the computer lab.

We will be working on Flickr and we would like to invite you to exchange ideas in our group Holiday Surprises and Everyday Scenes.

Here are the links to our individual blogs. You may prefer to see them in alphabetical order here.

    I am looking forward to contributing to your Flicr and will check in from time to time. The site looks very nice and the class sounds like it will be a very good one. Cheers, Lee

  2. Hello Bee, Thanks for your message in French on my blog. It would be great if the students could tell us about Brasil on their blog, as it is THE country I dream of visiting. I’ll probably go there these summer holidays.
