F@F-project (2000) between Sipoon Lukio (Finland) and Tienen College (Belgium)

Timo Hilekoski

Tim Vanrothem

Tim Vanrothem is 17 years old. He lives in a little village near Tienen. Tim is 175 cm tall and he has blond hair and blue eyes. Tim likes french fries and motorbikes. I think that Tim is a real "party animal". Timīs favourite subjects are English and French. After he has graduated from the school, he wants to study auto-mechanics or become a chopper pilot.

I have learned something about Belgium in general. Good things in Belgium are beers and nature. Bad thing is that there are too much cars in there.

I think that this e-mail project has been a very pleasant experience.

The boy to whom I have sent e-mails is nice and friendly and he lives in a little town . I think he doesn't really like life in Finland because it is to cold there . I guess he would love to live in Spain because of the warm weather. I like to talk with him , and I would love to stay in contact with Timo . I think that he is like me in a way . I guess that he always knows what to do, just like me. I also liked his reaction on my fotograph . He said that I was wrong because I had told him that woman in Finland are more beautiful than here . When he saw my picture he said I was wrong , he claimed that the Belgium ones are also beautiful. I would love to visit him in Finland because he has told me about the wonderful nature there. 

I think the project is a success because you learn something about another country , and you get to know other people who aren't the same as you .
