By Wendy Innes
'If you find the prospect of travelling with teenagers daunting, consider the problems, the adventures and the sheer exhilaration of taking thirty excited and attractive young girls to countries inhabited by amorous Gallic youths, poisonous stone-fish and traffic that hurtles at you from the "wrong" direction.'
This book provides reassurance that teachers responsible for school trips take care of their students and have the experience to cope with all these hazards.
During her long years as a languageteacher at Auckland's St Cuthbert's College, Wendy Innes has been involved in nine school journeys to Noumea, Tahiti and France.
Young People make delightful touring companion. They discover that, with goodwill and a smile, they can make a little of a foreign language go a very long way. Their vitality, humour and high spirits add a whole new dimension to overseas travel.
