Teach me more!

Lauren teaches her lesson to an enthusiastic class
Turns out that our students can't seem to get enough of our spoken English classes here at the Institute for Global Awareness, Adampur. Class sizes are booming at present, after an unexpected surge of interest in lessons in the past two weeks. We have so many keen and eager new starters that not only do we have our usual class between 10:00 - 11:30, but we have now had to put on an early bird class at 08:30 - 10:00. Sadly for our interns this means no more lie-ins in the morning!

Both Lauren and Natalia have been sharing teaching duties, as doing three hours of lessons back-to-back can be quite demanding. However, they have taken these developments in their stride, and have continued to discuss many key topics and issues including, culture shock, wasteIns management, drugs, and politics. Students find the classes fun and engaging, and all this extra revenue being generated is great for our social projects, as we are able to direct more finances towards them.

What's equally encouraging is that Jerah, who is working very hard on putting together a proper curriculum of sorts, is making great headway and should have a structure for lessons in place by the time that her internship finishes! Meanwhile the lessons in Dosarka are still just as successful as ever, as fees are being paid on time (always important), with students taking a great deal of enjoyment and satisfaction from lessons!
