For your reading pleasure

So I took on the position of Director of studies for the second year in a row at the University of Western Ontario (Huron Campus). This year we had a wonderful group of 17 year old male U.A.E (United Arab Emirates) students join our language camp. As one of the requirements we had to incorporate I.T. into their program. I decided that having them create a blog was ideal to help promote and improve their English. I was quite floored when Talal posted this particular blog...what do you think?

A bit of background: This particular group of 41 students plus 5 chaperones told me that in the U.A.E none of them have ever attended classes or school where they intermixed with the opposite sex. So here at our camp when they were encouraged to mix and mingle with students of different culture and sexes...THIS was one of the reactions to his time here at camp...
