On November 12, the UIU Intensive English Program students took part in the Iowa Culture and Language Conference for the first time. They held a panel discussion where they shared their experiences learning English and gave advice to ESL teachers, based on their careers as ESL students. After the panel discussion, the students broke into small groups for further discussion with the audience members.
After the conference, the group went to a nearby mall where some of the students and teachers went skating at the ice skating rink there. It was the first time ice skating for at least one of them.
