Las alumnas de 5º año E.S., María Parise y Micaela Seijo participaron de la maravillosa experiencia de intercambio con el Colegio Hockaday School de Dallas, Texas.
Micaela Seijo and María Parise, two of our fifth year
students, spent January at Hockaday
School in Dallas, Texas as part of the International Exchange Programme.
This is what two of the teachers wrote about them once
they left Hockaday School.
We really feel very proud of both of them
"Tuve el gusto
enorme de conocer a Mica Seijo cuando pasó un mes con Samantha Watson en
Hockaday. Mica formó parte del grupo de alumnas con el que me junto diariamente
por 20 minutos. Ella se adaptó rápidamente—su entusiasmo fue contagioso.
Durante su estancia pudo pasar y experimentar por varias clases. En una ellas,
introducción al periodismo, Mica filmo un video en donde entrevisto a alumnas y
miembros de la facultad. Tuve la oportunidad de observarla durante una de sus entrevistas
una semana antes de que Mica regresara a Argentina; el cambio y progreso de su
Ingles fue increíble, y la confianza y comodidad con la que se movía por la
escuela era de una naturalidad extraordinaria. El último día de Mica en
Hockaday no fue triste solamente para ella sino para todos nosotros que tuvimos
la oportunidad y el honor de convivir con ella."

"It was a delightful experience to have María join our Advisory during her visit
to Hockaday. She interacted right away with the students and shared her life as
well as what people do in Argentina right away. Day after day, I observed she
was loving it more and more. She learned a lot about the culture here in the
United States and enjoyed hearing what the other students were sharing. She was
always ready to participate in the conversation, even when she found it
difficult. Her level of comprehension and speaking was great and she found it
easy to communicate. I believe her hardest class was US History, because it is
a very advanced course and she expressed to me that the content was very
elevated. Additionally, I asked her to join one of my AP Spanish classes where
she interacted with the students in her native language and she found it
fascinating to be able to compare cultures. "
always had a smile on her and seemed to enjoy every moment of her visit.
It was impressive to observe how well she adapted and communicated, not only
with students, but with faculty as well. "
"Thank you for
making this happen for the students, because they all benefited from her visit,
and I am sure María did too."
