  • 28. Strengths & Weaknesses Language: English can help if you wish to involve teachers from all over Europe in the same discussion Topics: not all topics are interesting for each European teacher, so try to indentify on what it may be worth discussing Culture: certain Europeans are more “shy”, some others are there willing to chat! Find your way! eTwinning and…: Teachers Rooms are inside eTwinnig, but not only for eTwinning!
