    Peruvian Students End Three-Week St. Michael's Visit (By Aitor Arrondo, Spanish Instructor)

    Mariali, Daniela, Luisa, Angie, and Antonella are five young students from Lima, Peru, who just spent three weeks with us at St. Michael’s for their summer break. They wanted to come Austin to experience American high school life and improve their English skills by attending regular classes.

    For the last few days of their time here, they presented lectures about their own country and culture. They prepared the lesson very well with a PowerPoint presentation, food and souvenirs for students. The students ended the lectures by salsa dancing with their classmates.

    They liked Austin and are quite impressed with St. Michael’s. They said the campus is beautiful, the classes are interesting, and the students and teachers are friendly. It has been an unforgettable experience for them and for us, too.
