The Road to Enlightenment

So What is This About?

For your "Abiturienten" out there: We hope that this website provided you with interesting information when preparing for the Abitur examination. Especially if you read our piece on the political background, i.e. the effects of immigration on the U.S. economy, you would have been well prepared.


For your convenience, we feature a link to the full text of "Embracing Illegals" from Business Week.


This is the website that goes along with our "Tortilla Curtain Project". Here you can find lots of information about T.C. Boyle's "The Tortilla Curtain", the author, characters, symbolism, themes and motifs, language and structure, the political backround, the Mexican view on the immigration issue, real life stories and much more.


In the meantime you may also want to visit the guestbook.


The project was carried out by the Grade 12 Advanced English Course of Langenhagen Gymnasium under the eyes of our tutor Mr. Perrey.


Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this project!
