Recently a group of students from Omaha, the USA, visited our university. It was an exciting week for all, full of events and sightseeings. There was a conference with guests from other Moscow universities and on-line with 2 other Russian universities. The USA students made their presentations in English and Russian(!!!). I think exchange projects are so important and educating for all -studentsa and teachers. But unfortunately they are rare. That's why the Internet projects like your blog-class provides great opportunity.
When do you have summer holiday? When do your exams start? Do you have exams or just credits? Our students have both.
