After a few preparatory lessons, this week it was the fourth graders’ turn to have lunch in English. In the beautiful Sala della Contessa we gathered around a large table and we prayed in English, the teachers were the waitresses and they took each student’s order. The students were very self-confident, and it came naturally to order their lunch in English. They were able to ask for the first course, the main dish and the side dishes. They passed water and bread among themselves, on their classmates’ requests. When called to order, they conversed in English. The lunch finished on a sweet note with American brownies prepared by Ludovico’s mother. After lunch, they followed the teachers’ directions for unsetting the table. We were proud of our students!
