Yesterday I spent a great day teaching Greek at lower intermediate level to a fantastic group of students. It was the Summer School Refresher Day and along with my summer school colleagues, we taught 47 students from all over the world. One of my students joined the class from Australia, and while the rest of the class were discussing how much snow had fallen overnight, our Australian participant was sweltering in 40 degree heat! Regardless of where the students were located, I'd like to congratulate all of them on completing the Refresher Day. The tutors were both impressed and inspired by their enthusiasm. And of course, thank you to Amber, Steve, Lynn, Laura, Kerry, John and Derek for their expert teaching.
