In June and July, our English teachers bid goodbye to our sixth grade students, who will be beginning middle school in the fall. Our team members were able to attend some of the school clausuras (graduation ceremonies) to congratulate their students on their accomplishments and wish them the best of luck in the future educational endeavors.
Our sixth grade students have received two full years of lessons in our Beyond Borders English program, and they have learned so much! Some students are now reading magazines in English in their free time, and we often hear them integrating English words and phrases into their everyday conversations. Many students told us how sad they were that they had reached the end of their time in our program, but they are excited to continue developing their English language skills next year in middle school and beyond!
