... good things are already being shared. My principal is aware of what we are doing and has shared our stories with our superintendant. Students have shared stories with their families ... and so on ... laying the foundation for a better world ... one brick at a time.

Emails from a teacher in Oakland, California
"Our students have very few opportunities in their lives, especially for travel, but the project has become a valuable way for them to virtually visit and learn about different countries and get an idea of how big the world is and how we are still very much alike.

Xinhua Bookstore is the largest Chinese state-owned enterprise of book stores (there are 10 in our city-Shaoguan).

If you are interested to attend John Wu's lecture please feel free to go to Xinhua English Salon, Shaoguan Shu Cheng."

In the 5th grade we started to write on the website to you, when we started it was very strange because we wrote to strangers and in the English language, and it was very hard to write the letters because we didnít know how to write without mistakes, and in every letter we had a lot of mistakes.
