  1. Hallo from South Africa – I’l gladly forward this to some teachers in South Africa – problem here is that most schools are busy with exams, schools in South Africa close for the time of the world cup.
    What age group would work best – contact me at

  2. Hi Saltash
    Sorry can’t help you with this one. The winter school holidays start for my school on June 25th so we would not be around to communicate on the 1st of July. I did pass your tweet onto a friend who teaches as an all boys school but he too will be on holidays. some schools do not start until Friday July 2, so hopefully you will get some antipodean takers. have fun

  3. THis is really cool because you
    can proudly talk about yourself and your people,
    and see what others in other countries are really like.
    You never get a real feel for a country and kids your age
    through the standard news and media.

    I am really interested in doing this.
