During the four-hour activity, students learned songs in English and created their own dance steps. They presented their performances for their families and other guests at the closing ceremony of the University of Talca English Immersion Winter Camp.

“Students enjoy collaborating on creative projects and sharing their achievements with their families. This activity was chosen to promote the use of English through artistic expression and to spotlight the students’ talents in communicating in English,” Strand said.
