English Day at a technology school in Timor-Leste

Students, teachers, and staff at Dili Institute of Technology in Timor-Leste participated in their first English Day this past January.

English Language Fellow Kinsey Wethers organized the event with┬áDIT’s English teachers. Participants used their knowledge of English vocabulary and practiced their speaking and listening skills in six different games and activities. After learning action verbs and directions, attendees learned how to dance the “Cha Cha Slide.” Some of the administration staff even joined in.

After this successful event, plans are in progress to develop more activities that provide students opportunities to practice their English skills outside of the classroom.
