English language essay writing workshop for 9th grade students

In the past few months essay writing workshops for 9th grade students took place as part of the collaboration between the Skopje public schools and NOVA's Service Learning program. Our three wonderful American exchange students from the YES program, Natalia, Emily and Faber, under the professional guidance of one of NOVA's college counselors, had a unique opportunity to teach essay writing tips and tricks to their peers from the public schools: Dimo Hadzi Dimov, Vlado Tasevski, and  11th of October. This was a part of their Service Learning activities during their one-year studies at NOVA. They found their role as teachers both enjoyable, for the ability to share their knowledge, and challenging, for their attempt to bridge the cultural and communication gap.
