Skype adventures 2012 #1

Country:- Portugal

On Friday, the Form 6s had an amazing Skype session with the students of the Agrupamento de Escolas de Figueiró dos Vinhos. We had prepared for the session by checking out the resources on the NALIS website and with that and their general knowledge, they were ready!
First they all introduced themselves and then each group shared about their country and culture, youth issues and education. The girls even showed them our Divali display in the library and then mentioned our school's upcoming Divali celebration complete with tassa drumming, sitar instrumentals,dancing and singing etc.
Our learners noticed that the Portuguese students seemed were somewhat surprised about our activities as we are a Roman Catholic school. There was a very lively exchange about what it means to live in a truly multicultural society!
