    Hi Fernanda and Fernanda's students. My name is Rosa and I'm and English teacher from Sydney , Australia. Originally I'm from Huesca, a small city in the north of Spain, but I've been in Sydney for over 20 years. I think you've chosen a great subject, multiculturalism, for my students to talk about and answer your questions. In my class there are people from many different countries, Japan, Lebanon, Chile, Colombia, China, Russia, India, Serbia, Thailand... You'll get to know them all. We are always comparing traditions, customs and cultural ideas. It's most interesting and we all feel privileged to be able to learn so much from each other.
