Heat, Thunderstorms and More Heat

July 3, 2014

The weather hasn’t been the greatest today, but that hasn’t stopped us from continuing to enjoy the Spanish immersion environment! At this morning’s assembly, students presented about dining in language. Although this topic was fairly broad, knowing how to say things that are part of daily life may suddenly become a bit more difficult; for example, how to order food, how to describe your food, or how to explain that you don’t like your food and might want to order something else. Needless to say, the students did a wonderful job and embraced the challenge with excitement.

Afternoon activities were held mostly inside, including yoga, swimming, dance class, card games and most popular of all, salsa making! Due to slightly inclement weather, part of our evening plans had to be altered. Students had a bit more relaxing evening in the dorms, joined by teachers and RA’s to continue to support the language learning environment. We’re all looking forward to the weather calming down a bit, so we can start to have more activities outside!
