Student comments

Student Comments

  • Before I started reading what you posted, I imagined people like Tarzan and thought that everyone in Suriname were crazy jungle people and had tigers for pets…..but now I know that it isn’t true there are villages and stores and people have jobs, etc…..

  • I thought this blogging activity was an excellent way to learn about different cultures because it’s from people with first hand knowledge and who actually lived it, not like a text book. It’s more real when you hear it directly from a person and I think you get more information that way. Plus you can ask questions and know you’re getting the correct answer.
