Making content relevant

I have taught English, Spanish and French for several years. I have found that it is so important to make the content student-centered and interesting to increase motivation for each and every student. So, when some history and English students were fortunate enough to go to Prague, I asked the students to research and present a 1 minute oral presentation for us (not the tour guide) on a topic they chose. Here is Evan in front of the very famous clock in downtown Prague, explaining the history, enjoy. My students also preferred to listen to their classmates throughout the trip, instead of just one voice.
