A to Z Challenge – L for Latvia

Challenge: I am pretending to be a Latvian transfer student telling a Canadian class about my life in Latvia. Hope you like it!

(I walk into the new classroom)

Teacher: Hello class! Today we have a new student. His name is Andris! Andris, welcome to class, can you sit in the front with me please?

Andris: Ok, um… what am I supposed to do.

Teacher: Well in three, two, one were singing the Canadian anthem (Kids rise and sing)! (Andris didn’t know what to do!).

Andris: What do I do!

Teacher: Don’t worry, how about you tell us something about where you came from. Stand in front of the class and present yourself!

Andris: (Andris goes up in front of the class) Well my name is Andris and I lived in Riga, the capital of Latvia. I am right now learning english because I mostly know how to speak Latvian, one of the two surviving Baltic languages.

Teacher: Well Andris, this is very interesting. Can you tell us about the place you lived in?

Andris: Well Riga is a huge place with tons of castles! It has tons of amazing architecture like the building of the Blackheads for example. This is my favorite building in all of Riga! It was built in the 14th century for the Brother of Blackheads, a guild for unmarried German merchants in Riga.

Teacher: WEll.. you sure seem to know your history. You seem like a wonderful student! Unlike the other kids, she mutters under her breath.


Well kids head out to spanish class now!
