Cultural Exchange

Bosti Elementary School’s fifth-grade C-Quest students had the chance to learn about world languages during a recent visit from Spanish language teachers in the district, along with several members of Connetquot High School’s National Foreign Language Honor Society.

Teachers Ann Marie Lombardi of Oakdale-Bohemia Middle School and Will Bedell of Connetquot High School, along with the honor society students, worked with the fifth-graders to further their understanding of the culture, geography and worldwide use of the Spanish language. By engaging in fun games and activities, the fifth-graders learned about the traditional Hispanic holiday known as the Day of the Dead, as well as numbers, days of the week and months of the year.
