thanks to the teacher, my classmates but in special to the teachers, students and everyone that work in this beautiful school.
Beveridge School is full of pleasant surprices as young students with incredible talents, eager to explore the world, beyond their own knowledge. Thanks again for share this special moment to learn about other cultures around the world. I liked the message recorded with Derric, it was great.
I hope to see everyone in the international caffe

International Cafe was a sampling of the different cultures around the world, gathered in one place, to share with everyone students and teachers, who visited the stands of the countries and their representatives. Thanks to the teachers and students, of Beveridge middle school, for joining with us on this day. I hope that beeches enjoyed it, as much as we enjoyed with yours. In my opinion I think is a great experience for students in middles schools, it is the opportunity for students explore, and learn more about other cultures, with this kind of events.

I think it's really important to stay in contact with the other and have the opportunity of talk about culture and personal life in my country and know about the other countries. I will learn a lot with this project.
