They call me NIKA

This is Nika. My private English student. He is nine and in the second grade. The only English that he knows, I taught him. So any and all other words he communicates to me with is in Georgian. But we still make a great team!

One response to “They call me NIKA

  1. The name Nika reminds me of the Greek word Nike. In Greek mythology, Nike (Greek for “Victory”) was a goddess who personified victory. Tradition holds that Pheidippides ran the 40 km from the battlefield near Marathon to Athens to announce the Greek victory over Persia in the Battle of Marathon (490 BC) with the word, “Nike.”
    The marathon was one of the original modern Olympic events in 1896. The distance was modified in the 1908 London Olympics so that the race would start at Windsor Castle and finish in front of the Royal Box at the City Stadium (26.2 miles).

Holla atcha boy!
