“Swordfish” Section Meets Peers via Skype

On Wednesday, February 12, 2020, the Swordfish section tele-conferenced via Skype with the Kindergarten section of the Colegio Ramón y Cajal, in Madrid, Spain. The two classes got together to discuss topics related to the cross-cultural unit, “Who We Are,” which they are currently researching.


The Swordfish had an opportunity to speak with students in Spain, to ask questions, to share experiences, and to sing “Happy Birthday” to a new friend who was celebrating that day.


The objective of this activity was to enhance students’ communication, presentation and English language skills as well as to nurture values such as diversity. 


It was a unique experience for our young students, one that generated good discussions and the desire to repeat this activity.
