Hi,

I've just sent a message to the Moroccan members of my network explaining the situation and quoting the first two paragraphs of your first post in the "Looking for international..." discussion.

I've given them the Twitter ID on your profile here and also your blog address. I've also said you were a member here.

I hope you all get to work on the project

Warm regards,
Beatriz

Hi,

I saw your reply on Twitter to the discussion on finding international Skype partners -I'll ask one of the Moroccan teachers if it's OK to share some of his contact details with you. I'm almost sure he'll be OK with it.

I'll stay in touch
Beatriz

Damn, I just dumped that project grading App about 15 minutes ago. I didn't think you would show up and nobody else wanted it. Sorry!
