  1. Remei need some help urgent please. The girls are telling me that the proyect of social needs to be in english and the problem is that I've allredy printed in spanish does it need to be in english?😫😫
    Pd:What do I need to copy of English

    Martina M

    1. Hello, Martina. I'm sorry to answer so late, but I was out. Yes, the project is in English as we said in class. I know it's more work, but as I showed you in my example, you have to do a summary of every section in English because that is the language in which we learn Social Sciences. If you cannot print it again, just bring a pendrive with the document and we'll print it in school. I'm very excited to see what you found out about your family history!
