OC Ice Skating acitivity

On Friday January 13, a group of 25 international students from LSI went Ice Skating at the Anaheim Ice in Anaheim, CA.  This facility is where the professional hockey team the Anaheim Ducks practice.  The countries represented in this group were: Saudi Arabia, Syria, Jordan, Peru, Brazil, Switzerland, Taiwan, Korea, Japan, and the USA.  For some of the students it was their very first time to go ice skating.  We had a great time!  The place was packed on a Friday night with lots of students from local high schools and colleges.  It was a great way for our Language System students to experience American culture while also trying to pretend like it was Winter in California.  Everybody fell at least once, but no one had to call 911 or visit the hospital afterwards.  It was a very successful activity and the whole group felt a lot closer after our skating time was up and we had to head home.
