It’s that time of the year in which celebrations can not be passed up in Miami the USA School of English. The fall in the USA comes along with Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. This year, in the last week of November we had a yummy Thanksgiving lunch on Wednesday November 27th. We had an awesome time to share all together in which our students, teachers, and staff members at EC Miami had the pleasure to enjoy amazing food such as: the quintessential roast turkey, turkey stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, corn, dinner rolls, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, and finally to wash all these down, refreshing apple cider. It is always nice to sit with people and have food together while having a little chat on plans for the long weekend-as a matter of fact, the longest weekend of the year here in the USA.
As another part of our Thanksgiving celebration at EC Miami, we asked students to write down what they are thankful for. The whole point was to have them read them out loud in the students lounge before enjoying all of that amazing food. It’s meant to be a special activity to express gratitude, and it is amazing to see how many positive and heartwarming things our students are grateful for. Here are some of the most relevant gratitude statements: “I am grateful for being healthy and having family and friends”, says Qendrim from Switzerland in Intermediate. “I am grateful for my beautiful wife and family. I am grateful that we are all healthy and happy. I am also thankful for everyday I can watch the sunrise and sunset”, says Joseph, the teacher of our elementary level. Finally, I am thankful for a happy life, that my mother is still alive, and having a home”, says Abdullah from Saudi Arabia in Pre-Intermediate. We know, right? Beautiful messages full of the kindest words. What about you, guys? What are you thankful for this year?
