In 2006, the World Wide Web became a tool for bringing together the small contributions of millions of people and making them matter.
That's why TIME magazine selected everyone of us as Person of the Year 2006.
This new web, experts call Web 2.0, is allowing ordinary people to make themselves heard on a global scale, thus fostering a new digital democracy.
In http://www.time.com/time/magazine/europe/0,9263,901061225,00.html you can read the article Power to the People and meet 15 unknown citizens who, for some reason, were important in 2006.
The purpose of this blog is to encourage you, students, to use your English, or should we say your Englishes? , to exchange ideas, opinions , materials ... on a variety of topics you have to study at school and on current events. By giving you the opportunity to express youselves freely, we hope to get to know you better and to develop your critical thinking, your autonomy and your communicative skills. Have fun!
