On August 18th, U.S. Acting Chargé d’Affaires Eric Whitaker welcomed the parents and family members of the students who participated in the American Center’s five week-long Children’s Summer English Workshop, to the Closing Ceremony. Sixty Eritrean 6th and 7th graders, who attend 11 different grade schools during the normal school year participated in this special summer workshop. Participants had the opportunity to practice their English while learning new games and engaging in conversations with native English speakers. For the American Center Staff, the highlight of the summer was seeing the students perform their songs, poems and skits in English at the Closing Ceremony.
