July 26, 2017

Students from Mexico are learning English while gaining exposure to the culture of Prince Edward Island through a program being run by Collège de l'Île. The four-week English immersion program includes 96 hours of teaching and cultural activities that allow the participants learn about the Island as well as the language. This program is part of Proyecta 10,000, an initiative whose goal is to bring 10,000 Mexican students to Canada between 2015 and 2018 to learn English. Each week of the program has had a different theme, including history, heritage, arts and traditions. CBC
