Five AFS exchange students who are studying in West Hartford this year visited with students at Webster Hill Elementary School.
Webster Hill Elementary School was thrilled to recognize and celebrate International Education Week (IEW) 2021 with a special visit from five AFS exchange students currently studying at Conard High School. The exchange students are from Ghana, Armenia, Germany, Montenegro, and Japan.
On Wednesday, Nov. 17, the exchange students visited classrooms and provided presentations to the elementary students, sharing the customs and culture of their home countries. They also read from dual-language books, as the younger learners enjoyed stories read aloud by the high school students in their native language.
IEW is an initiative observed in 100 countries and led by the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences.
