The most important lessons learned in 22 years of traveling with & without students all have been incorporated into a bilingual project for students to start in class and then complete with online research. The students learn about currency exchange, making phone calls, using credit cards abroad, packing lists, and describing their plans in future tense in Spanish. The students display their findings in $1.00 photo albums available at any Walmart. It is a requirement for students before they travel abroad with me in the summer. But for those who will never leave the town, they imagine they can afford a trip to any Spanish-speaking country and have fun drafting their own itineraries. It can be easily adapted to other languages.
