St. Valentine’s Day

Today the WOA Center was quite busy!
On the St. Valentine’s Day a group of 10 students from the secondary school #23 visited our facility.
The teacher Ms. Iryna Dubovetskaya has been at our Center before and decided to introduce it to her students as well.
First the children watched a slide show about the history and traditions of the St. Valentine’s day.
The Voice of America web page and itsEnglish classroomfeature was introduced to the audience. We have watched and listened to the on-line lesson about Valentine’s Day. The lesson allowed the students to practice grammar in the context of Valentine’s Day celebration in the USA.
The American English web site was also introduced and the on-line video game Trace Effects was presented to the group.
The students sang along children songs about love and friendship.
The highlight of the session was the game “St.Valentine’s Post”. The children wrote Valentine wishes in English on the provided heart-shaped cards and exchanged them with the classmates.
A “Voice of America”  Calendar  for the English language classroom was presented to the teacher as a token of  friendship between the Window on America Center and the secondary school # 23.
The visit was a lot of fun and we hope to see the kids again at other  WOA events.
The number of visitors – 11 persons.
