As part of the One World Project, the Multilingual Academy students in California will be recording podcasts on a variety of topics. Our first topic will be "Our Classes" and will be posted on our One World Project website.

What are some topics that you think will be of interest to the students of the international community? Please send suggestions to us to be added to this wiki.

Topic - What Makes You Happy?
Think about what makes you happy and feel good. Of course it can be a lot of different things: a place you really like or something that is special to you. It might be where you play sports, where you like to go for a picnic, your favourite place in your town or something that you own that is special. Maybe it´s your family, best friend, your pet or something you like to do in your spare time.

Topic - My Most Prized Possession
What is something in your home that is very dear to you? Something that you absolutely would bring if you had to evacuate your home. Why is that object so dear to you? Is it a family heirloom? Does it remind you of a happy time? Does it have a monetary value? Is it something your family needs to survive?

Topic - Small Steps Make Big Differences
Have you thought about the fact that global warming has an effect on everybody... even you and me. If we want our children to experience all the beautiful places and animals on Earth then we have to change our way of living. Very small steps make big differences. Let us get started here and now. What are you prepared to change in your everyday life?
