Katherine Stanley chats with four high school students from Liceo San Rafael’s bilingual track about holiday traditions in Costa Rica: the Festival de la Luz, tamales, pasitos (Nativity Scenes), and a Halloween. The students also share how their public high school’s approach to bilingual classes has helped them achieve English fluency.
Katherine was joined via Zoom by Jimena Salgado Altamirano and Derick Morales Salas (9th grade), and Alex Rodríguez Acuña and Santiago Correa Fallas (10th grade).
