We started English classes!
We are actually finishing our third week, since we started the day after we returned to Mae Sot. It has been so much fun! We have four levels and about forty kids & adults participating! I teach Tuesday to Thursday in the afternoons and evenings.
The littlest ones just have lots of fun as we study the basic level of English. Here you can watch a video of us learning animals and sounds!
For the middles, it’s a great way to practice understanding me and starting to form sentences. The oldest kids are able to put what they know into practice, and they are picking things up quickly. While we see the kids regularly anyway, this makes the time in our house more productive, and it makes it more manageable for us to welcome them in more often!
For the adults, we are focusing on conversation that they will encounter regularly. Some of them aren’t literate in Burmese, so we are focusing on the conversation that will be most helpful to them. Outside of meals, it has been the best way for us to connect with the adults! It is really wonderful to be able to talk and laugh with them in class.
We are really excited for this little addition to our community!
