EC Miami's students and intern watched an exciting football game last Sunday

EC Miami English Center Sports Event

  Last Sunday, a group of EC Miami English center students watched the Miami Dolphins vs the Houston Texans game. The home game was located at Sun Life Stadium, and some of the students partake in an all-American tailgating experience. The students witnessed a group of cancer survivors singers singing the ‘Star Spangled Banner’ song to start the game. It was exciting to watch the Miami Dolphins game, as we scored 5 touchdowns during the first 2nd half of the game. The excitement of gaining yards and getting touchdowns were not as exciting as watching our students braving through the rain to watch their first football game, as well as interacting with the locals to teach them about the game. This experience is extremely unique and more amazing games to come in the future.
