    In 1560 Felipe II decided to impel the expansion along the Pacific and ordered to colonize the Philippines, in order to turn it into the Spanish base of the commerce with Asia and China, despite the fact that with this decision the treaties currently in force with Portugal were violated for being outside their area of agreed expansion.
    The person in charge of carrying it out was Miguel López de Legazpi, who departing from Mexico disembarked in the Philippine archipelago, at the Cebu islands: Mindanao and Luzon. In 1571 Legazpi founded the city of Manila, which is placed in an excellent natural port on the west part of Luzon Island; the capital became soon the center of the Spanish presence in Asia, and from there grew an intense trade with China
    Comment Italy:
    Spain has always had a main role in European and American history and the text is very clear about it; maybe it's excessively schematised.

    For us the most visible sign were the two languages which we could see everywhere. We also noticed some prejudices towards Russians.
    After your careful research we understand your history much better.
    Comment Italy:
    We have never heard anything about some things, like the "freedom of trade", and that's because we found this topic
    very interesting.
    The whole piece is written quite clearly, even if we found the second part a bit difficult to be read because of the therms used.
    Probably because we don't study much of the Finnish history

    There has always been tension between Scotland and the neighbouring country England. There were many wars between the two countries before they were united with Wales and Northern Ireland to make the United Kingdoms. Nowadays there is a strong rivalry between the national sporting teams but overall relations are positive.
    Comment from Finland: We didn't know thatthe British Empire has ruled over 458 million people in 1922.

    Comment from Finland: We didn't know thatthe British Empire has ruled over 458 million people in 1922.
    Comment from Italy: It's amazing how such a small territory has become so important and the English language is spoken by about one and half billion of people.

    Text is very clear and it gave a good overall view of the topic. I think there is nothing that suprised me about Estonian history. These things are quite familiar to me.
    Similar thing to history of Finland is that both countries have been under the soviet occupation and both contries have been in a war against Russia.
    Sources: Comment Italy:
    We don't study Estonian history very much because we concentrate on bigger and better known countries like England, France etc.
    In our opinion the text is very well exposed and We found it very interesting.
