Thank you to the Eagle and Janet Funds : “Living in a Multicultural World” grant, gave our school the great opportunity to take students to visit New York City and experience speaking , reading and listening to Spanish in the real world.
The students attended a theater performance in Spanish with native Spanish speakers who live in New York city; they visited the Statue of Liberty; stopped by Ellis Island and the National Museum of Immigration, and ended the day at an authentic Tapas restaurant where they had the opportunity to try new cuisine.
It is part of the commitment of the foreign language department to show students the practicality of the foreign language they are learning. This wonderful experience was possible with the support of the Eagle and Janet Funds.
The students realize that learning a foreign language is a great tool for their future in order to be more integrated in a multicultural environment.
In this new era of globalization, effective communication and cross-cultural understanding are key to success.
Our mission is to guide students in their exploration of foreign languages and cultures, thereby fostering curiosity, love, and respect for diversity and a deep understanding for the value of inclusivity.
