We're thrilled to share the exciting happenings of the third and penultimate week at our immersive Chinese, Russian, and Arabic language learning summer program. As we edge closer to the end of this incredible journey, our passion for languages and cultures continues to grow. In this update, we'll delve into the many enriching experiences of the week.
This week students throughout the program learned about a wide variety of traditional souvenirs and items that one might come across while traveling in other countries as well as culturally important foods that would be important to know and recognize. Students of Arabic negotiated prices in a mock marketplace, trying to get the best price for the items they were interested in. Students of Chinese learned about activities and hobbies while also painting pandas in their art class. Students of Russian had the pleasure of witnessing a spectacular performance of traditional Russian dance. Some wonderful guest performers from the community, along with some of our own talented instructors, introduced us to the graceful movements, vibrant costumes, and the storytelling aspect of this captivating art form. Thursday also brought an entire mock café of traditional Russian food for our Russian students to try in an environment where they could sit, order and eat, all in the target language. Students of all three languages have also been hard at work preparing their special presentations for the closing ceremony next Tuesday, July 18.
Stay tuned for our final week, where we will celebrate the culmination of our immersive program and reflect on the incredible progress made by our learners. Please join us at our closing ceremony on Tuesday, July 18 from 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. in the Tallwood High School auditorium. Until then, let us continue to immerse ourselves in the beauty of languages and cultures.
