Thanksgiving Day

Last  November, 22nd the 4th form students attended a great cultural lesson on the ocassion of Thanksgiving Day: a very American holiday which is celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November. We welcomed Christi at school. She belongs to Fundación Intercambio Internacional , she carried out a number of activities with the students, dealing with history, vocabulary, pronunciation, etc. She even brought smarties (candies for "smart" people) for those students who took an active part in the session! So thank you, Christi, for sharing your time with us and making us learn a bit more about your culture!

Halloween Halloween Halloween

Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays so I was thrilled to be able to help out with the festivities at school. At my station we had a mixture of activities- we played a little bit of trivia, acted out some charades, and even did the "Mummy Wrap" and a few other popular and typical holiday games from the United States. Watching the students get so involved and excited to participate really made the whole experience even better then I expected. All around I think that everyone had a great time and the day turned out to be a smashing success. Celebrating Halloween with all the students was an absolute blast and it is certainly something I will never forget.
