Seeing With New Eyes

vietnam English teaching
Breakfast meeting and we are off to another day at NBK.  It was nice to have the directions and map to NBK.  The cab driver did not get lost today.  Thus, no arguments when we got there.
The morning was two periods of 3rd through 1st graders.  Great fun but we all agree that 4 volunteers in a classroom is too many.  Before lunch, we spent about 30 minutes talking to two student teachers.  They were very interesting.  They are worried about finding a job after they graduate from college.  So what is different here than in the U.S.?  They also told us that population growth in the country is the main issue of concern.
Lunch, a break and then one more class of first-graders – then back to the hotel.
Dinner was at the Huyen Huong Restaurant – spring rolls, fried rose and pho. Altogether a pleasant evening.
Our quote for the day:  “The real voyage of discovery consists not of seeking new lands, but seeing with new eyes.”
