"As Patrons and Goodwill ambassadors of Adopt-A-Minefield we are delighted to support the World's Largest Lesson 2003. Through the World's Largest Lesson thousands of students around the world will become aware of this most important issue and help raise funds to solve the problem."
Paul McCartney and Heather Mills McCartney

What is the World's Largest Lesson?

 

It is an attempt to get as many teachers and students from around the globe to take an English-To-Go.com Instant Lesson on the topic of Landmines during a particular time.

 

There have been three World's Largest Lessons, in 2001, 2002 and 2003. Hundreds of thousands of students of all ages in more than 200 countries have participated.

 

The World's Largest Lesson educates people about landmines.

 

The continued widespread use of these antipersonnel landmines creates a situation where thousands of people will continue to be killed and maimed in years to come. Landmines are unique weapons that reach into the future to kill civilians years after the conflict that they were used for is over.

 

Students from any subject area can participate, including English, Geography, History or Social Studies students.

 

In 2003 the English-To-Go Instant Lesson 'Night of a Thousand Dinners' was taught in over 200 countries as diverse as Oman, Costa Rica, Iceland, and Venezuela.

In 2003, the top five countries with the highest number of participants were:

  • China
  • Vietnam
  • Ukraine
  • Singapore
  • Canada

Feedback from our partner Adopt-A-Minefield is extremely positive. We have helped to increase awareness of this support group's efforts and the continuing campaign to raise funds for mine clearance and survivor assistance. By contributing as little as $2 people can become involved with the worldwide effort to clear landmines.

It really provoked a lot of reactions from the students and a lot of conversation and research for a group discussion." Patricia Escalante, University of Costa Rica, Central America.
