English Language Centre British Corner Celebrates Christmas with Nativity Show

Fifty-three students of the language center British Corner participated in a festive performance, the first of its kind in this center, and an acclaimed success.

“What I have witnessed here today, these amazing children is such an incredible importance,” Nick Wilkes, Lieutenant Colonel and UK Defiance Attaché told Georgia Today. “I have children of my own, already grown up, but we as parents all remember when our children were in such Nativity plays. It is incredible to see children speaking so many languages and also singing in a foreign language. It was a great experience for me to see it.”

The evening was also attended by the Deputy Minister of Defense, Ana Dolidze, EU-NATO Information Center Director, Elene Gotsadze, U.S. Embassy Press Attaché, Daniel Hastings, and British Embassy Representatives.

Among the students who participated in the show were the children of soldiers wounded or killed during the 2008 August War or international peacekeeping missions. Thanks were given to the EU-NATO Information Center which organized a charity project for the children and awarded them free English Courses for several months. The project was sponsored by the British Embassy to Georgia and the British Corner.
