Burbank students use blog to learn English
April 10, 2008
"Their countries are different, and so are their accents. Their governments vary greatly, and so, too, do their cultures.
But there is one common thread among these hundreds of teenagers exchanging posts on a blog: a desire to learn English.
Almost three dozen students at Luther Burbank High School are communicating via the Internet with 200 other students across the globe who, like them, are learning English as a second language.
On a blog created by their teacher, Larry Ferlazzo, and instructors from six other countries, the students are corresponding about their lives and cultures." -sacbee
