A group of 5th form students studying at the Theoretical Lyceum from Calarasi, Moldova are involved in the project "My name around the world". They found out why they are called the name, whose name they have got, who gave them the name, who was the first person in their family with similar name. They looked for famous people with the same name from different countries. They also researched the number of students with their names in our lyceum. The students wrote students acrostics describing themselves, starting with the letters contained in their names. The students made cards where they wrote the description of their names. Working on the project, first they shared the information in their poems with their classmates, teachers and parents. Then they used Edmodo to share their texts, poems and photos with the students from Beaconhouse School System, Gulshan Primary 6, Karachi town, Pakistan, involved in this project and guided by Ms. Komal Waseem. By the way they still do it. They also read the posts of other students and replied them. They learned many interesting things about their own names and other person’s name. They drew the conclusion that names in Moldova and names in Pakistan are too different to find similar names, anyway they make many pen friends, practiced English and learned a lot of new words, in special adjectives. ”My name around the world” is a great project.
