Some projects included newspaper articles, radio and television programs, foreign language films, the singing and playing of foreign songs, and more. This year, there was also a poster contest with the current year's theme "Boost Your Brain With Languages", organized by several classes from both schools, and numerous students won the contest for their creativity and love for languages!
