We all started our day early squeezed into the hotel minivan for the 15 minute ride to the school. Once there, Phyllis and Rita did a great job of finding each of us a teacher to work with. All morning we “went with the flow” and moved from one teacher to another as needed.
I was very impressed with the students and their knowledge of English. My first and favorite classes were 18 year olds, whose studies have focused on languages. I visited with a group of young ladies and had a great time asking questions about their lives, families, and wishes. I answered many questions about my life and experiences in the USA. I was happy I brought along some photos of Utah for them to see. One student asked about wildlife in our area. I mentioned that I sometimes see deer or moose hiking in out mountains. They had no idea what a moose looked like. Thanks to modern technology, I was able to show them a picture I had taken of a moose on my I phone.
I’m looking forward to the coming days; meeting new students and watching Phyllis and Rita perform their magic in order to meet all of our needs. Penned by Vicky
