Events of the European Day of Languages


Celebration, 26.09.2017 , New York, United States of America

This year, instead of having several “Languages days”, we decided to focus on one day only. To make the experience more meaningful for the students, with the help of the Cultural Center, we were able to invite artists so the students could participate in workshops depending on the language they study.
In Italian, Roberto Scarcella Perino (opera author) worked with Y7 to Y10 in the music room.
In German, artist Bastienne Schmidt was with Y7 to Y10 in the MakerSpace.
In Mandarin, Y7 to Y10 talked about Kung Fu culture and philosophy as well as taught some movements with the Bo Law Kung Fu Association in the Small Gym.
In Spanish, Flamenco singer Alfonso Cid lead workshops for Y7 and Y10 with his team in 2 different spaces: the Auditorium and the Motricity Room.
