Atlantic College

Last week I went to visit Atlantic College, an excellent private college in Wales. Unusually, it gives young people the much-needed experience of life outside the classroom, as well as the opportunity to study for their exams. The students, who are between 16 and 18 and come from all over the world, spend the morning studying. In the afternoon they go out and do a really useful activity, such as helping on the farm, looking after people with learning difficulties, or checking for pollution in rivers.

One of the great things about Atlantic College students is that they come from many different social backgrounds and countries. As few can afford the fees of £20,000 over two years, grants are available. A quarter of the students are British, and many of those can only attend because they receive government help.

'I really admire the college for trying to encourage international understanding among young people', as Barbara Molenkamp, a student from the Netherlands, said. 'You learn to live with people and respect them, even the ones you don't like. During the summer holidays, my mother couldn't believe how much less I argued with my sister.'

To sum up, Atlantic College gives its students an excellent education, using methods which really seem to work.

MONEY

What is money? The pound, the dollar or the euro are actually just like a gram or a kilometer. The difference is that you can exchange money for something . A ten-pound note may buy a book, a huge bag of sweets, or a of cinema tickets. But the note itself is only a printed of paper which costs almost nothing to make. Thousands of years , people didn't have money as we know .There were no banks even shops. In those days, Mr. Green the farmer exchanged the corn he grown for Mr. Hive's honey. This was an exchange arranged between two , each of whom had something that the other wanted. But in time, most societies invented their own 'currencies' that people could exchange more. The different currencies began to join together, which is why everyone uses the same currency in their country.
