EC London Culture Day

Yesterday the Bloomsbury Group of EC London 30+ put on an amazing day of culture, food, and dance. The day started with different language lessons including a Lithuanian lesson by Vitalij, and a Spanish lesson with Paula. Later in the day students and staff got to learn difference dance styles. Zeynep started off by teaching the traditional dance of Turkey, belly dancing. After belly dancing Hardy from Columbia taught us how to salsa dance! Lastly, Fernando taught us a famous Brazilian dance called ciranda.   After a morning full of learning languages and dancing we were able to enjoy many foods from different countries. Yessica and Mario brought delicious empanadas from Columbia. Matilda brought multiple homemade Korean dishes. Wendy brought Chinese food, Sara brought Arabic food, and Beatrice brought cheeses from France.   To end the day, we had a wonderful presentation from Yuka, Gigi, Matilda, and Younyoung on the culture of Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan. Their presentation included information on foods and clothing of each of their countries. A big thank you to Yuka for organizing the presentation. We hope everyone had a fun day experiencing cultures from around the world. Below are some photos of the day!     To learn more about English teaching courses in London please visit our website
