¡Hola estudiantes y familias!
This morning there is some great energy in Perú. The men’s national football team just played their last friendly match in Perú in preparation for their first appearance at the World Cup Final in 36 years. Today, they leave to train in Europe for the remaining two weeks before their opening competitive match in Russia (against Denmark on Saturday 16 July at 12:00 pm EST!!!). People were hoping for a strong despedida and la selección responded with a dominant 2-0 win over Scotland last night in Lima! #ArribaPerú
Just like the blanquiroja, the I-team is entering a phase of more intensive preparation for the course. Here are the most important steps that you can expect from us between now and Miami.
First, stay tuned to the Yak board for the following messages:
Second, next week, the three of us will be reaching out to each of you for one-on-one phone conversations. We want to have these calls completed by June 13 as we’ll then begin our own orientation which will keep us pretty busy. The purpose is to discuss any questions you may have as you prepare and to begin to get to know you as people and Dragons students. We’ll get important information for our arrangements with local partners, for example. How is your Spanish? Your Quechua?!
We hope that this information sounds good to you. You’ll be hearing much more very soon!
p.s. the pictures is NOT of the men’s national team – it’s a match between two club teams at a park in Urubamba.
