JOHNSON CITY (WBNG) — Johnson City High School students got to talk with some special guests Thursday morning.
Spanish students chatted face-to-face with students from Colombia.
They discussed different holidays, traditions and basic day-to-day life in each country.
“They have to walk to go to, to learn English. They go, and to talk to us, because they don’t have Wi-Fi where there school is, ’cause it’s outdoors. So they go walk and bring their desks to a house that has Wi-Fi so they can talk with us,” Makaeyla Ailport, a Johnson City junior said.
Students say these discussions have opened their eyes regarding the challenges the Colombian students face every day.
