Students from Italy, Romania, Greece, Slovenia communicated by emails or forum, talking about different subjects that the same students chose or the teachers (like this: do you like or not to go to school, do you like Maths or other subjects...). The students already shared opinions about leisure time, music, movies, books, pets ... in an earlier project named "Global Communication". They were more and more involved exchanging news and ICT skills. They made Power Point presentations of themselves and of their school and towns. I've created a blog named "" and invited my partners to upload their works and share them with most people: some of my students asked to learn and try to upload their presentation using different media (overall windows Movie Maker). All the partners contribute to create and share a common dictionary. Finally all the students made a websearching activity (in the folder of each school in the twinspace and under the title "our web resources" as a post in our blog) to exchange learning materials found in the web: so they had discovered that Internet may be a fantastic learning community, but one must select the materials and use his/her critical ability. More: using foreign language to learn other disciplinary contents (as it happens in CLIL, Content and Language Integrated Learning) made the students better understand the language as a tool of acquisition and transmission of knowledge, and not only as an abstract entity regulated by grammar and syntax. It comes so favorite not only the linguistic improvement, but also the motivation; it increases in students the awareness of the utility to learn a foreign language and the trust in their own possibilities.
