Hello everyone! Today we went to some of the most popular tourist locations in San Diego!! We had 6 American students joining us today, so there were a lot of great English conversations today.

For our first destination, we visited Old Town. Old Town was the first permanent settlement in California back in 1769. It really is an “old town.” Students divided into groups and worked on a scavenger hunt for their English Class. There are some amazing sites at Old Town!

After the scavenger hunt, we all had free time to explore Old Town. Most students decided to eat at Cold Stone Ice Cream to help cool off from the heat! Students ordered in English and paid with American money, so it was also a great learning experience 🙂


Then, we headed over to watch the Padres baseball game! Today was a hot day, but we were able to see the game clearly. Unfortunately, the Padres lost to the Pirates (7-1), but we still had a good time at Petco Park 🙂


The baseball game was so hot, so we were all happy to visit Seaport Village! Because it is at the harbor, the wind felt great! Even though it was hot, it was such a beautiful day today with no clouds. It is the best weather for sightseeing in San Diego (and getting a nice tan!)

For our night activity, we had a volleyball tournament! Students did a great job, but tonight’s winner was Team Chocolate. Who will win tomorrow night’s English Games?


Students also decided their groups and topic for a cultural presentation. Our topics include homes, music, greetings, food, and school life. I am excited to see what they learn from the American students next week!

Today was another long day, but it is amazing to see how much everyone has changed in only 6 days!! One student told me “I am so excited for tomorrow, but I also don’t want the camp to be over!” I was very impressed by how everyone is trying their best in English! They all have such a great attitude, so Ben and I are excited for this next week too!

Tomorrow is back to English class, but I have a feeling they will be more talkative during class 🙂

Thank you for reading and have an awesome night!
