UEC Russia Forum
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.

list of countries at the bottom of this page!
Please share your opinions below. It'll be a
pleasure to hear your input. And by all means, be sure to
comment on and rate the other students' comments as well.
