Twelve digital nomads who arrived in Hotel Selina Playa del Carmen joined the English Conversation Club to practice this language with 48 students.
The first thing these fun-loving travelers did as soon as they arrived in Playa del Carmen, was to join KKIS English Conversation Club in public high school Cecyte I!
Selina Roadtrip Mexico 2019 – 7 destinations, 12 nomads, 12 days!
Hotel Selina took 12 nomads from around the world on a tour through the best destinations in Mexico, and Playa del Carmen was one of them!
Emily Rodriguez, Experience Manager at Selina Playa del Carmen, contacted KKIS to coordinate this activity in which students had the opportunity to meet people from 8 countries!
- Puerto Rico
- South Africa
- United Kingdom
- United States
They only spent 2 days in Playa del Carmen, so the KKIS team is deeply grateful to these volunteers for spending time with these students.
To make it a better experience, the volunteers and students were divided into 2 groups, so each had the opportunity to chat for one hour.
Before the end of the first session, Andrea, a digital nomad from Puerto Rico, said to the students:
“Please be aware that there’s only one volunteer whose native language is English. The rest of us are from Latin American countries and we came here to help you practice your English. Please learn the language, don’t be afraid of it”.
During the second hour, new volunteers and students were engaged in fun conversations while also meeting volunteers from far away countries, like 2 young men who came all the way from South Africa!
Thank you, Selina!
Having 12 volunteers with such different backgrounds and countries was a great experience for these high school students. Thank you, Selina, for joining this wonderful activity in which both volunteers and students learn from one another.
