Sorry to hijack the thread, but I was picked as the Name-It winner. I can īt post my own topic (Server 404 error), so I will have to wait until the server problem is fixed to resume the contest.
And Gi2gi, we are on opposite ends in the Caption Contest. I had the spider influenced by a human artist!
Edit: I havenīt seen ANY new topics today. Has anyone been able to start a topic, or is it my problem? (Still canīt post, 12 hours later.)

There is a highly popular program called Science in the Summer that is held in libraries. It was developed by an international drug company  (GSK, formerly known as Galaxo, Smith, Kline) and Science museums co-sponsor it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MJ7_fZheUgY
http://www.gsk.com/en-gb/contact-us/worldwide/  They might be able to give you information or a lead to a similar program local to your country.
Their Facebook page  https://www.facebook.com/GSK lists another challenge for students https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H7lXLbI9Asc&hd=1 So, anyprogram with hands on learning motivates students, I think.

Happy 4th of July to all my colleagues, family, and friends all over the world teaching ESL.

It would be very nice if independency was indeed the case. Sadly, based on global news broadcasts and internet sources and the likes of economy, debt, trade and wars, the US of A are as dependent on the rest of the world as anyone else. In other words, they are not independent at all.  They may, as a generalisation of their character, not know much about the rest of the world (Australia is a continent, not a city in Arkansas), but they could lead the way of establishing peace, solving climate chance, educate the world in healthcare and curb population growth, become a philanthropist and so on.  (If the world was only as nice and loving as this website community, hey.) 

Alas, I don īt want to spoil your holiday feelings, as we all need them as often as possible, so here īs my wish: Welcome to the real world :-)
Cheers, Peter

It īs a custom started by a restaurant in Austria, where you are allowed to sing for your supper.
Also spelled wir-rap-a-meal
wir = German for īweī but is pronounced as if it began with a īvī
rap =genre of music
mil = meal

European contacts   
Hi again. I īm still looking for contacts in various European countries for my 4e European class next year. I īll have 26 students who are 13-14 and I īd like them to be able to compare their way of life and culture with that of students in other places. Is anybody out there interested in this project? I īm looking for one or two students from each country to correspond with mine, from as many different places in Europe as possible. I īm sure it will be a worthwhile experience for the students. Help, please!! And in the meantime, enjoy your summer holidays, Anne

Something I have learned and would like to share.   
Hi guys, I had a useful tip this week, from the great Larry Ferlazzo.
It īs the end of term, so during the final class, I shake hands with each student (Larry suggests a hug!) and say īIt īs been a pleasure having you in my class this year ī or, when that is too big a fib;-) īIt īs been fun having you in my class this year ī and then comment on something they have done. īI liked the way you helped others/always smiled/cleaned up/were respectful/did your homework ī etc...
This has gone down a treat, so I thought I īd share it...

Hi every body,
 In November we will be starting a project with some students from Norway. The kids are 12-13 years old. We need to find everything we can about the country, its traditions, its history, etc. So if you have any stuff that can help us (webquests, worksheets, sites, ...), we will be very grateful !
Have a lovely day! Fabienne

The Norwegian Junte Law has always intrigued me (even though I īve had one successful Norwegian tell me it was all malarkey).
This link is probably a bit too high level for the kids, but it could lead you in a helpful direction:
