SPRINGFIELD, Va. (WUSA) -- Learning English as a second language can be tough when you move to the United States, but some students in Springfield, Virginia are actually having a lot of fun doing it.

Juniors and seniors at Robert E. Lee High School are creating multimedia documentaries on any topic they choose and the final product is fantastic!

Students in the class come from Vietnam, Iraq, Somalia, Mexico and a host of other countries, and all of them say this project was a huge help, not only with their English, but with teaching them better study and research habits. How Cool is that?!
