World Language Week will be celebrated at Nipmuc Regional High School from March 13-17. Come check out the amazing work of our Italian/French/Spanish students!
Our Advanced Grammar and Composition Spanish immersion students are painting portraits of famous Hispanics throughout history and writing biographies on their lives and achievements.
These immersion students, as well the AP Spanish Language students, are competing in a writing contest sponsored by The Spanish Resource Center at UMass Boston.
Every day during the morning, students will enjoy the sounds of international music over the loudspeaker, courtesy of the Hispanic Civilization, Literature, and Culture class. These students are also creating ornate “azulejos”, or Spanish tiles for display.
Level 3 language students will be creating and illustrating children’s books and fairy tales in the target language.
Each level 4 student is researching the life and contribution of a famous Italian/French/Spanish figure. Students will “become” this famous figure for a day, and be able to answer questions about themselves and their respective works in the target language. These students will also be creating monuments and artistic reproductions of famous works of art or indigenous sculpture and pottery.
Students from the Latin American Experience classes are learning about the Aztecs and writing their names utilizing the Ictapa alphabet.
NEW THIS YEAR! – On Thursday, March 16th from 1:00pm-2:00pm, all level 2 world language students will be “competing” in our first annual “Battle of the International Food Trucks”. In groups, students are designing fictional “food trucks” and serving up some amazing international fare. Sharply dressed in their newly-created company “uniforms”, students will be glad to tell you all about their food truck concept/theme as well as some fun facts about their country’s/region’s flag, tourist attractions, and signature dish. We are so excited to welcome some foodies and restaurateurs from local businesses such as Bertucci’s, Acouge Vale Do Aco, and Rebecca’s3 as well as some community connections, like Major League Cuts, that we have made through our Latin American Experience class, to serve as judges. Students from the Latin American Experiences classes will serve as hosts and assist our visiting judges with the voting process.
That night at 7:00pm, we will proudly induct over 60 members into our newly-chartered Spanish/French/Italian National Honor Societies. You are cordially invited to join us in the cafeteria for a celebration of our World Language students’ incredible achievements.
Students in Level 1 language classes will be designing and creating unique international t-shirts. On Friday, March 17th from 1:15pm to 2:00pm we will hold our annual Level 1 International Buffet. Join us in the cafeteria to sample some international fare and to judge our annual international t-shirt contest.
We are really looking forward to this year’s World Language Week and hope that you can join us in celebrating cultural diversity, tolerance, and understanding.
