 Bad weather school closures

It's that time of year when we must anticipate bad weather that will make travel difficult.  Whenever Nashville public schools are closed because of bad weather, we are closed. The official name of our school system is Nashville/Davidson County Metropolitan Schools.  On the radio and TV, they are sometimes called Nashville schools, Davidson County Schools, or Metro Schools.  It all means the same thing.  Sometimes, the radio or TV announces that certain schools are opening late.  We don't open late.  If we are open, we begin at the usual time, 9 a.m.  The radio and TV start announcing school closures early in the morning.  If the weather looks bad, listen to the radio or TV or go to this link:

We were together for Thanksgiving, and we loved being together.  We work hard, but we have fun, too.  Language is an integral part of life, and we enjoy working together, playing together and talking together .

About Belmont International English 
An English language school for international students has been in operation at the Belmont United Methodist Church since 1966. 
Through the generosity of the church members, around four thousand students from many countries have been helped to improve
their proficiency in English and their understanding of American culture.  
We welcome new students.  We work hard, but we have fun, too.
