Every so often, we plan a pot luck event at the school for our students. If you don’t know what a pot luck is, just imagine everyone bringing food and drink to a party and sharing it together! With the beginning of June marking the end of Ramadan, we decided to have a Pot Luck to celebrate with our students, especially those who observed Eid, the Islamic holiday practiced all over the world, and came to class dutifully every day despite the demands of Eid sapping their energy!
The students really stepped up to the challenge, contributing with food from Taiwan, Brazil, Korea, Colombia, and others. We have some very talented chefs among our student population! My personal favorite were the Korean dumplings. EC pitched in by providing a cake, a lot of pizza, and drinks. Here are some choice photos from the event, which was a huge success and again showed how EC Washington is such a special school.
As an English school Washington DC, EC seeks to provide a complete experience for students who come to improve their English with us. This means that their experience goes beyond the classroom and involves using their English to solve problems, make connections, and seek out what English means to them in their lives. Events like these help build the strong sense of community that comes with having small class sizes and a tight-knit community of international students. We will be enjoying plenty events like this one over the course of another beautiful Washington summer.
