I am an ESL teacher. I have some students from Peru. They loved to see their country featured in the movie and then it opened a great discussion where they shared their experiences with the rest of the class. They also got to see the importance of legal tittle of their land.

I thoroughly enjoyed using this DVD with my Spanish II classes. I also appreciated the discussion questions that came with the DVD. They helped to initiate a good discussion after the DVD.

This video is a great way to show students how decendants from ancient cultures we explore still exist. It is also important to expose my students to the workings of other countries and civilizations. Junior high students must be aware of the huge world that lies outside the borders of the town in which they live.

I am an ESL teacher and this video is great! Students could identify with Eusebio; it inspired discussion about realistic dreams that can be reached. This video will be used each year with the literary theme: Hope and Dreams in our reading series published by Hampton-Brown.
