First Days of School
We launched the summer English program this week- and it has been a great success! This year we are really working on English literacy, and not just focusing on conversational English. So far it is working. We have five classes a day, starting with preschool and ending with adults. Each class has between 20-25 students... with a waiting list.
Biondy with his 7-12 year olds practicing the days of the week and months of the year at calendar time.
Two former students, now turned teachers- Nesly and Biondy have great teaching strategies, and their students love them!
