Student Testimonials:

"It feels so different than what I do in school. It feels more than that, where I am learning about different things. It doesn’t feel like school. In school I take notes and do worksheets. With this class, I find it so fun to do the research and learn about these places." —Kaden, Grade 10

"The thing I enjoyed the most in this course was talking about the environment and the culture from different locations because I found those were the topics that interested me the most. The coursework linked to those topics, was the work I was most eager to complete and I had the most fun doing.” —Elise, Grade 10

"I quite enjoyed learning about the impacts of tourism on certain locations, and how I as a traveller can ensure that those locations can remain intact for the next visitor to see."—Brooke, Grade 11

"I found all of the feedback very fast and accurate. Even when reading over my returned assignments, I was able to see where I went wrong and how I could improve my work."—Enrique, Grade 9
