Ethnic Lunch/Dinner is one of the most popular activities in our ESOL Program. At this event, which takes place twice a semester, ESOL students, their families, and ESOL faculty bring foods from their countries to share them with others. In addition to food, students often use the opportunity to celebrate the music, dance, and traditional dress of their countries. This event often includes a talent show where our ESOL students have a chance to showcase their artistic abilities. Our students' talents have included dancing, playing musical instruments, singing, performing magic, reciting poetry, and performing martial arts.
Celebrate Success Ceremony
At the end of each fall and spring semester, we celebrate and acknowledge our students' achievements at this event. The ceremony includes awarding scholarships, certificates and prizes to our students, entertainment, guest speakers, student speakers, and food.
Lone Star College-Kingwood offers a wide variety of student clubs that ESOL students can join. One club, the Intercultural Student Organization, has been a popular choice for ESOL students. The purpose of the club is to learn about and celebrate diverse cultures and traditions, promote diversity on campus, foster intercultural understandings, provide a venue for the exchange of cultural information, and allow international students an opportunity to practice their English. For more information, speak to your ESOL professor.
International Education Week
In November of each year, LSC-Kingwood observes this week to celebrate the diverse cultures represented by our students and to promote multicultural understanding and international education. ESOL students are actively involved in the planning and implementation of the activities for the week.
