Make new friends... September Intensive course
There are a lot of new students on campus this week and most of them are far from home, possibly for the first time. They're taking intensive language courses in English and/or Spanish, getting a head-start before the first trimester begins. They also come to our English Activities which are great because everyone has to use English to communicate. No excuses. For some it is a challenge, for others it's no problem at all. .
.Either way, they have a chance to make new friends very quickly. I hear they are already planning parties and trips for the weekend.
Sometimes I see someone alone or even 2 or 3 in a group, checking email and facebook or texting friends back home. Oh, " I miss my friends and my family " Yes, of course you do, but you can make a lot of new friends if you just make a little effort, or come to the English Activities. Look at the photos. Reach your own conclusions.
The old camp song in the US comes to mind during these first days of September:
"Make new friends, but keep the old
one is silver and the other gold."
have a chance: tener la oportunidad
reach a conclusion: llegar a una conclusión
Hope to see you in some of the activities! -Wendy
