On Wednesday, May 18, the Yale World CLASS (Culture and Language After School Studies) program for high school students concluded the 9-month long program on Yale campus during which more than 150 local high school students met weekly with their teachers and peers to study Arabic, German, Italian, Japanese, Kiswahili, Portuguese, Russian and Urdu.  Students, parents, teachers and friends gathered together to celebrate the Spring Festival at Luce Hall by performing skits, dances and songs in the languages they have learnt this year.
