Helen Bukulmez talks about her experiences in CESL.
The group visited different student workshops and learned from regional experts about different musical instruments like the dulcimer as well as Appalachian music in general.
Lina Crocker, Senior Lecturer at the Center for English as a Second Language, and her husband led a group of 40 CESL students on a trip to the Cincinnati Zoo. The visit was a special experience for the students, many of whom had not previously been to a zoo.
On April 18, 2015 over 100 CESL students enjoyed the Taste of Africa event at UK’s Worsham Theatre. The event cost $10 to attend, and proceeds went to provide insurance for children with HIV/AIDS via the Ten Per Kid Project.
CESL currently offers two language tables to help benefit the educational development of our students while simultaneously supporting the foreign language students at UK. Mrs. Lina Crocker started these events to help students, and she continues to lead them each semester in the Patterson Office Tower.
Several CESL students joined Mrs. Lina Crocker to enjoy a night of music at her family home, offering them a chance to show off their musical skills on a variety of instruments provided by the Crockers, such as guitars, dulcimers, and a piano, as well as lending the students the opportunity to bring their own.
On Wednesday, April 8, 2015 Mrs. Lina Crocker and Miss Julia Diez took several students to visit Abraham Lincoln’s birthplace and My Old Kentucky Home State Park. This is one of many opportunities for students to take a day-long trip with CESL Faculty.
