Teaching in RS

It has been 3 weeks since my last class with RS girls. They were eager to start the session as I entered the room. I started the ball rolling with some tongue twisting sentences. They practiced and teased each other as we go through the lesson.

I noticed that one of them had given birth to a girl and another one is still in a hospital with a boy waiting to be discharged in a few days time… The baby that I saw three weeks ago had already been given to her foster parent. I sensed that the mother was a bit quiet this time around. Maybe she's missing her daughter….

Anyway, we ended the lesson with telephone etiquette. As usual they will have to pick a partner and practice with each other.

One of them asked about my life. What I used to do, countries I visited etc. After telling them some stories of the countries I've been to, I reminded them that whatever they do or wherever they go, they must not forget who they are and why they are here on this earth. Knowing English is a bonus and they should try their best. Even if they speak broken English, I'm thankful that they are not afraid to try. What really matters is our mentality and not the language we speak….

MM signs off.
