Halloween Party 2016

Halloween Party 2015


Learning a language is more than grammar and proper spelling. In order to fully understand a new language it's important to understand the culture. One of the most celebrated holidays in the west is Halloween. Every year we teach our students the importance of culture by celebrating Halloween. 


Skype Call with Leo Mendoza from Busan Abandoned Pet Sanctuary

Our students were very lucky to speak with Leo Mendoza, the owner and operator of the Busan Abandoned Pet Sanctuary (BAPS). Mr. Mendoza taught our students all about proper pet care. 


Sharks 4 Kids

Teaching our students about environmental and animal protection is very important to us. Therefore, we do our best to find local and international guest speakers to engage students. 



Our Chat with Toontastic Creator Andy Russell

It is important for our students to know that the people who create computer games and software are just like them. The co-creator of one of our favorite apps Toontastic took the time to answer our questions and also inspire our students to follow their dreams where ever it may lead them.
