Nearing the end
It sounds like you chose two very interesting people to talk to about their identity. It's particularly interesting for me to read about all this, because with all you students asking a lot of different people, it's possible to get a better idea about how people feel in general about living here. It gives a different idea than if you listen to the radio, read the newspapers, etc.
The final assignment is to write a summary of what you have seen and done, and to offer some advice to those students coming next year. what should they do / shouldn't they do?
