E-Twinning is a space in the web that was created to promote cooperation and friendship among European schools.
This is a program sponsored by the European Community.
Recently, I have decided to register in the E-Twinning space because I was looking for different challenges and to offer my students new opportunities to practise the English as a foreign language.
The answer from abroad came quickly. I have been contacted by a Danish teacher to work together.
Her name is Helle Olsen. She lives in Kalundborg, a small town about one hundred (100 km) Kilometers from Copenhagem, the capital of Denmark.
I'm enthusiastic...so are my students...
I hope this partnership to be the beginning of a very interesting multicultural exchange. Only through understanding of other people's cultures and ways, is it possible to enforce world peace.

I think this is a great idea, i mean, to learn about other cultures, to make new friends is awesome. I talk by myself because I want to study out of my country, I want to know and to see the culture that I most appreciate and to learn with it. It will be a fantastic experience. I'm glad my teacher have this young ideas :D

I totally agree with my colleague. :) This an excellent opportunity for us, students...
It's always good to communicate with people that have different habits and cultures...

One more time, fortunately, "funny learning" in our student lives!
As Simão said.. i'm glad too for your wonderful ideas that more and more catch our interest to learn... :) thank you

Well, actually I do not want to be "anonymous" - It's only because I haven't created a google account yet...
My name is Helle Olsen - I'm the teacher, Ofélia mentioned. I just want to say that my students are looking forward to communicating with you!
Best regards, Helle.

As all the others that have posted comments here, I also think that E-Twinning is a great idea. Actually, I do not know a lot about Denmark and I believe that I will be able to learn a lot in a funny way. I'm anxious to start communicating with foreign students, actually, I believe we all are :)

E-Twinning is a great idea and not all the teachers would be available to work in this project as our english teacher, thank you. :D
