Menzah 8 Students Visit Embassy

The Information Resource Center received a group of students and their teachers from El Menzah 8 Pioneer high school. The students performed a short play on peace, presenting values such as solidarity, love, and volunteerism. The students met with Public Diplomacy Officer Sarah Hennessey, English Language Teaching Coordinator Saida Jedidi Sfaxi, and English Language Fellow Natalie Monkemeier. Ms. Hennessey talked to the students about her career as a diplomat and answered their questions about moving, making new friends, and learning languages. Ms. Monkemeier and the students practiced using “I” versus “you” statements to decrease tension in difficult conversations. El Menzah 8 Pioneer School, thank you for your visit!
