On August 20th, a group of Miami Beach Senior High School students completed EC’s third round of the Youth Language Link, a program which is a partnership between EC Miami and the City of Miami Beach. The program is meant to provide recently immigrated students with the chance to learn English for communicative purposes and prepare them to better succeed in school.
Throughout the course, the students studied grammar, expanded their vocabulary and practiced speaking. The final project of the course required students to use photos from social media, the internet and their phones to present about their lives. We learned about each other’s home countries and cities, families and friends and interests.
