UEC Switzerland Forum

Through this online forum, my students now have a voice to express their views about different countries and/or share their overseas travels with the online community.

First stop was America. Then Saudi Arabia, Canada, England, Switzerland (this page), and so on, all over the world, in accordance with the list of countries at the bottom of this page!

Check out this amazing tourism video of beautiful Switzerland:
