There is a lot that goes on beyond the grammar and vocabulary lessons in the classroom. As can be seen in Daphne’s and Anne’s advanced and high intermediate classes, student got the chance to explore Canadian culinary culture- by sampling types of peanut butter and exploring some of Toronto’s most quirky, colourful and sub-culture neighbourhoods.
Caribana is the annual Caribbean carnival that takes place every year in Toronto and it is HUGE. Music, dancing, food, costumes. The outfits are excessive and beyond fabulous. Lots of effort and passion goes into the parade every year so it was a unique experience to see for the students who got the chance to go. As for the rest of the group, they went to Wonderland, the amusement/ water park!
Taking a glimpse into the high-advanced classroom, students are doing the leadership portion of the summer program. The goal is to learn about leadership, self esteem, positive self talk and goal setting.
Big feasts for big farewells! A large groups of Brazilian students, as well as many from Spain are heading off at the end of the week, so we had one last celebration at Medieval Times, throwing it back to the days of horse games, sword fights and eating with our hands. It was definitely a unique experience!
Today was a huge game game for the Jays and one of the longest and most exciting games of the season so far. Facing San Diego, Toronto finished off with an overtime win. The students watch the game in the gorgeous home stadium, with it’s roof open showing the CN tower right next door. We even had a fun walk back to residence afterwards, with the streets filled with happy and excited fan energy!
