Starting a new English Club at the Excellence Center

Saturday, the 12th of March was the start of a brand new English club at the Excellence Center, comprising a group of about 25 students ages 14 to 16. Youssef and Shahda , two teachers from Hebron, planned and led the class with the help of the three volunteers who are currently at the Center: Lauren and Cara from the American Midwest and Melanie from the Canadian west.IMG_0050

This class focused on introductions and some ice breaker games where the students were encouraged to speak English with one another as well as with the teachers.IMG_0035IMG_0044

The students seemed motivated and excited and had no trouble jumping into an English-only environment. All of the teachers are very excited to work with this group further in the next few weeks. The group will meet once a week starting this Thursday.IMG_0036
