Things to do in December

Things to do in December

 

Connect English plans and gives so many fun activities during the holidays. Our student community gets to experience all kinds of traditional and original activities.

The traditional: we put up and decorate a Christmas tree, we play musical chairs, we go ice skating, we dress up festively, and we exchange gifts.

The original: the weekly Candy Gift Box contests, the Candy Cane Relay Race, and the Ormament Design Day activity.

We invented those activities, and our students love them! Add to that the amazing holiday events happening all around San Diego, and you can see that it is a whole month of Christmas cheer. Join us to experience Christmas the Connect English way!
