Yesterday, we all said goodbye to parents and family and welcomed in new friendships. We learned an Arabic phrase; day of honey, day of onion. This means that there will be ups and downs along the journey to learn a new language, but that there will always be a day of honey ahead.
Today we had a great first day getting to know each other at SMC! We are getting ready to go take the Language Pledge at 7:00 pm. Good luck to all the students at SMC!
Check back on Wednesday to read more about the Academies!
