As all of our students taking English classes in Miami know, next Monday (January 20) EC Miami will be closed in observance of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Dr. King is well-known in the United States for being at the head of the civil rights movement in the 1960’s, and his “I Have A Dream” speech is taught in classrooms from elementary schools to universities.
Every month, we give our students the opportunity to attend a university-style lecture, where they can learn about local culture, celebrations, and other “outside the classroom” activities. In honor of Dr. King, our Academic Director, Elisa, presented two lectures (for students studying in the morning and afternoon) talking about the life and accomplishments of Dr. King. Next week, these students will turn in essays detailing what they learned in the lecture. Check back here at the end of the month to see who our winners are!
