Congratulations once more time Cara and Chelsea!
Thanks for you comment– I hope that you will be able to make it. Submit an application just in case! Look forward to reading it 🙂
Girls, congratulations for the initiative of this project. It’s something different and new for English’s students of the region and will surely be an wonderful experience!
I really would like to participate, it would be amazing to improve my english. But the only problem is the STRIKE! 😦 I talked to some Univasf’s students and most of them want to participate, but we all are worried about our classes from university, that can come back anytime. Even like that, I will submit an application. 😉
Congratulations, lovely girls! Great idea. I’d like all my students take part on this amazing adventure. I’m sure you will be successful.God bless you since you are helping us to improve our English.
A million of hugs
I have to say that thank God and $&#@# that I just found out about this thrilling opportunity today. I cant apply anymore, but with the Univasf’s return from the strike, I wont be possible to many people to go, myself included, but, God, this is a great opportunity to improve English and de-rust our tongues. Really looking forward for the Petrolina International English Fair, and the 2nd Immersion Camp.
PS.: I would be thrilled to participate on the English Fair. ^^
We desperately need this type of event here. It provides an English speaking environment. I have never heard of one in our region before. Practice is crucial for anyone who wishes to improve his/her language skills. It makes perfect. Thanks for bringing this to us.
