Norton Simon Museum Visit


The beginning conversation students had the opportunity to visit the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena on Saturday, February 21st, 2015. 

      

The students were excited to see many works of arts from painters they have studied and read about. 

   

The students also enjoyed the hundreds of sculptures from around the world. The visit provided students an opportunity to use their English skills to describe works of art they liked and even some they didn't understand. 


Although they are more accustomed to art from their country, they understood talented artists are the same all over the world.

Clippers Game

     

It was a beautiful Martin Luther King Jr. holiday when I accompanied a group of Language Systems students to see the L.A. Clippers play the Boston Celtics. For many students it was their first experience riding the L.A. Metro trains, so after buying some TAP cards we were off. During the game, many of us had pretzels and popcorn among other snacks that were on offer at the Staples Center. Some of us even bought some Clippers gear. A great time was had by all. @NELAcampus

I had a good experience going to the Staples Center with classmates. We bought a TAP card and took the train to the Staples Center. We made it just in time. I was sitting with classmates and ate burgers and pop corn while watching the game : )
