It was a privilege and an honor today to accompany the Many Languages One World 2016 #MLOW2016 winners to the UN today. As French language facilitator, I assisted the students as they prepared their presentations in French this week at Hofstra University.
The student winners were intelligent, articulate, well-informed, and committed to a sustainable world, and their presentations were brilliant!
I am so proud of the French language winners, whose French language skills, teamwork, and commitment to a sustainable world were exemplary.
Out topic was Goal 12: Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns.
We worked together as a community and team this week on the beautiful and busy campus of Hofstra University, and the students delivered their presentations in their second language at the UN today — they were wonderful!
After a celebratory lunch in the Delegates Dining Room, the students will enjoy a weekend of New York City sightseeing and tourism.
Many thanks to ELS and to the UN Academic Impact for making this program possible.
Bravo, mes enfants, et bonne continuation! 🙂
