I began yesterday working as a volunteer teacher for ESOL (English speakers of other languages) classes held once a week at the local library. It was FUN!!!
I was stunned by a. the number of students and b. the number of countries of origin.
Here is a list of the countries represented at our little local suburban library:
Mexico, Columbia, Peru, Japan, China, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Russia, Ukraine, Iran, India, Pakistan, and France. (I may have forgotten one or two.)
The students are all very enthusiastic and happy to be in class. They WANT to learn.
Yay! Perfect students!
