A PIECE OF FEEDBACK The best evaluation of the work developed during that week arrived some days later. I was explaining a science lesson about coastal landscapes and the word “cliffs” appeared. I mentioned the Cliffs of Moher that we had seen in the presentation on Ireland. A girl from the 2nd grade asked me: “Teacher, when are we going to visit that beautiful country and know those children?” I simply smiled and I answered “One day, very soon” satisfied that we had achieved our target, that is, to awaken our pupils’ interest in knowing other countries and cultures. Now we have another challenge, to make our students’ dreams real and travel with them to Ireland.
