This week our students in Naples combined regular classes with extracurricular activities such as a visit to Florida Gulf Coast University, and a field trip to the Everglades. At FGCU, they were guided on a tour by a student of the university which answered questions or doubts. On Monday, they had a day off as it was Martin Luther King Day, a federal holiday.
“We’re all having an amazing time, everyone here is so nice, and we’re making so many strong friendships,” Teresa García (9th grade) told us via email. Her schoolmate Ángela Hernández (7th grade) described the exchange as “a great opportunity to know how the life of American people is like” and “an experience we will never forget.” The group flies back on Saturday, January 22. As many other students, Teresa cannot believe that the exchange is almost over: “I’m going to miss this so much. It’s been an amazing and unforgettable experience!.”
