East Coweta High School students explored other cultures during its annual International Festival
At the International Festival students from foreign language classes create booths from various countries. Each booth has a display poster with information about the country as well as some food and/or drinks from the country for the festival visitors to taste.
This year, more than 30 different booths from countries such as Italy, England, China, Japan, Austria, El Salvador, Argentina, Ecuador, Bolivia, Cuba, Martinique, Tahiti and Canada were part of the event.
In addition to food samples, the event also features performances by students such as songs in other languages like Spanish and Italian, martial arts demonstrations, and group dances such as La Macarena and Hava Nagila. The annual festival is a culmination of International Week at East Coweta High School.
During International week, every student taking French, Spanish, German or English as a Second Language at East Coweta has a passport to earn stamps for participating in a variety of activities. For example, the school holds a Foreign Language Trivia Bowl in which teams from each class compete against each other to show off their knowledge of other cultures.
Students also attend an International Film Festival after school for three days to see a different foreign film each day. This year they had the opportunity to see a German romantic comedy, a Chinese comedy and a Japanese animé film. In class activities include memorizing foreign language poems and tongue twisters, singing foreign language songs for other classes, and creating ceiling tiles that represent the target cultures.
