Off to the USA!
Today we said bon voyage to two of our Espwa veterans, Rose and Patrick, who will traveling to Massachusetts for four weeks as part of a private school's summer program for international students. For the first week, Rose and Patrick will be participating in a home stay with friends of Espwa, Marillyn and Jill. And for the following three weeks, they will be totally immersed in college life by living in a dorm on campus.
Alongside students from all over the world, Rose and Patrick will get a taste of what the college experience is like in the United States. They will perfect their English, learn more about the college application process, participate in extra curricular clubs on campus, go on field trips, and get a sense of what higher education classes are like. We hope this experience will get them excited and prepared for a full-time university one day. We are so very proud of Rose and Patrick, who boarded the airplane this morning sporting Espwa t-shirts and hats. We know they will learn a lot, and represent Espwa well!
