Commonwealth Youth & Teaching in the UK: The Queen's Christmas Speech 2009
Every year, the Queen of England gives a Christmas Speech which is broadcast throughout the UK. This year, her message focused on three themes: the financial tough times for many, the war in Afghanistan and the power of the Commonwealth Youth.
Most of our teachers and teaching assistants with Classroom Canada are under the age of 31 simply because the most common visa is the Youth Mobility Visa. It's a visa for some Commonwealth youth to encourage us to work abroad, gain experience and travel. As young Canadian teachers and teaching assistants, we usually fit this criteria.
What do you think of the Queen's message this year?
