Instant Immersion

Today at LIFE we were treated to ethnic foods and stories of countries and their cultures by our library ESL students. Lead by Ruth McDonald and Jill Vu, we had representatives from Mexico, Bulgaria, Cambria, Kazakhstan, Venezuela (means little Venice), Costa Rica, Canada (Quebec), and Cameroon. Some wore native dress. What a colorful and fun program. Our LIFE'rs chatted and sampled the delightful fare with these talented ESL students who shared their love of their respective countries.
