The worst sin towards our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them; that's the essence of inhumanity. - George Bernard Shaw

Precision of communication is important, more important than ever, in our era of having trigger balances, when a false, joy misunderstood word may create as much disaster as a sudden thoughtless act. - James Thurber

Language is perhaps the obstacle we encounter first in any project of cultural exchange and collaboration. In this section of Friends and Partners, we want to point the reader to helpful materials dealing with language instruction, tutorials, vocabulary, etc.

    Project Harmony

     

     

    Make sure to visit the Project Harmony web site. This is one of the best organizations involved in US, Russian exchange - and they've been at it for a long time (since the days when US and Russian exchange was limited mainly to music and performing arts). Colleen Halley does a super job with their site (and with the Internet School Linkages Program).
