Pittsburgh Brashear After School: Language Week, Advice For Freshmen, & Reading

[dmalbum path=”/wp-content/uploads/dm-albums/Brashear 3-11-2015/”/]

Some great dialogue at Brashear last week! Each of our three blocks chose their own topic for discussion.

Every student in Block 1 had lived in another country aside from the United States at some point, so, in the spirit of National Foreign Language Week, each Radio Club member talked about their first language. Later, in a round table setting, Block 1 talked about their experience coming to Brashear, which is Pittsburgh’s ESL (English Second Language) hub. Listen to their unique perspectives below.
