ESL students celebrated the “Red, White and Blue” at Rice University, enjoying American staples like hot dogs, chili dogs, and veggie burgers. America’s biggest holiday, Independence Day, celebrates the day the American colonies declared themselves independent of the British Empire. Americans typically celebrate with picnics, concerts, games, and fireworks. Here in the Intensive English Program, we jammed along to American music and played a rousing game of Bingo – with two winners taking home some great Americana. What a fun way to kick off the new class session!
