World Youth Meeting is designed to motivate students in secondary schools and Universities to break through the wall of English and enhance ICT competiences.
International exchange gives participants real-life experience; it is essentially an activity in an actual environment. It is a fruit of an integrative effort at practical use of all the learning and experience gained in the subject gInformationh such as giving a presentation, designing a questionnaire, making a graph with spreadsheet software, gathering information through the Internet, and comprehensive training. It is an activity beyond the boundary of a classroom and needs three kinds of communication, namely, communication with peers at other schools in the same country, communication with participants in foreign countries, and communication with onefs own self that live in this very age.
Like a project at a company, successful international exchange rigorously requires setting and accomplishing a goal and yielding results.
In addition, exchanging e-mail with foreign participants in English is a place of practical use of English learning. Students shift their focus from remembering and using grammar knowledge and vocabulary to actually listening to, speaking, and writing something in English and finally arranging and communicating what they have obtained.
International exchange is thus a project most suitable for comprehensive studies. by using commutation tools like internet.
