Farewell Messages

Amigos para Siempre – Friends for life
I look at you
I wonder why
There has to come
A time when we must say goodbye
I’m alive when we are together

Amigos para siempre
Means you’ll always be my friend
Amics per sempre
Means a love that cannot end
Friends for life
Not just a summer or a spring
Amigos para siempre

Carlablog1.jpgHi everybody! My name’s Carla and I’m a teacher of English at A.R.I.C.A.N.A., a Binational Center in Rosario, Argentina. Can you find Rosario on the map?
I’ve been working at the computer lab for a year and a half now and I really love it. I spend a lot of time surfing the net to find exciting activities for my students and learning about electronic tools of communication. Some months ago I met two CTJ teachers online, and we started planning this exchange, so here we are!!!

I’ve been to Brazil twice and I had a fantastic time there! I really think we have a lot to share and learn from each other. Let’s make the most of this experience!

Meet the Argentinian Team!

These are my computer lab students. They are in 4th Adol Junior and we meet for half an hour every week. We do listening comprehension activities, watch videos and  work on cyberhunts and web quests that are based on the topics they develop in class. Of course, everything is done on the computer!!
