STUDENT EXCHANGE Sirje Winbo and Marie Akerberg, two teachers of English at St Mikaels-skolan, 792 80 Mora, Sweden, are planning to visit England with a group of 17-18-year-old students as the finale to a year-long course on British history, geography, nature, education and culture. Since they hope to visit schools and would like the group to stay with fellow students' families, they would be glad to hear from any school interested in an exchange.
