The  conversation that was between students at Mountain View and  the Plymstock School in England was really interesting. It brought us up to the point were we could communicate with other students through social media from another country. We talked about many topics that describe the similarities and differences of  our lifestyle as students and our shared values.

One of the topics that brought my interest was talking about world religions and our personal beliefs regarding religion and spirituality.   We also discussed security issues after 9/11.  In America the government started increasing their security protection in the airports but many people also began judging Muslims who come from the Middle East. They have different stereotypes towards Muslims especially from Saudi Arabia.

My question for the English students in Plymstock is; are you guys  allowed to use cellphones inside the school building or the classrooms?
