Our first English Village event in 2018 was awesome! A big shout-out to everyone who came by.
We were so psyched to catch up with students from past English Village events, as well as being able to meet so many new faces.
We were completely floored by the level of confidence and enthusiasm that everyone had during Thursday’s English Village. I am still amazed today.
You are all superstars in my book! In addition to the many wonderful conversations we had with everyone, here is what also went down yesterday.
AGO (conversation game), Quiz me (conversation game) Apples to Apples (vocabulary game), Memory Lane (conversation starter), Upwards (vocabulary building/spelling game), Bananagrams (vocabulary building/spelling game), The Moscow Puzzles* (359 mathematical recreations).
We can’t wait to see you again at the next English Village. Spread the word! Bring a friend!
