The ESL+ Program went on its first major trip of the summer Friday. The students took on Washington DC.
Guided by their instructors and TAs, the students visited various monuments and iconic places, including the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, White House, the Capitol, and the National World War II Memorial.
Questions were asked as they walked through areas dedicated to those fallen during different wars.
Art galleries and museums also were places of attraction as the students made their way around the area. The day previous they planned out their day, marking the places they would try to visit.
After ESL+ Program attendees finished exploring the Smithsonian and the Air and Space Museum, their trip to DC would end at the Washington Nationals’ ballpark.
It was more than just a game. The students received a commemorative bobblehead and a certificate recognizing their first visit to the ballpark.
Whether they were celebrating the win or the end of the game, the Nationals won the game with a walk-off homerun, which had many of the first-time goers on their feet.
