During May, our cultural clubs and societies led us on a trip around the world showcasing their culture, language, food, and more. We've wandered the streets of Tel Aviv in Israel, eaten crepes in France, and hiked Mount Namsan in South Korea. You can find the recordings of the language lessons and activities below.
Our clubs have a special message to share with you all.
