English Class

During the last July Impact Trip, Paul led a four-day English class for 2.5 hours each day. There were 35-40 students each day with a broad range of students roughly ages 7 – 19. The class was free and open to all comers. 

The classes covered topics including greetings, common questions, body parts, basic movements and activities, numbers, colors, and animals. The concept was using songs and games, along with active class participation as well as lectures and visuals. 

The students were excited to participate, and the parents were optimistically excited to send them. Many parents checked with Paul to be sure that their children had been attending. 

The school administration, parents and students insist that more classes are offered ASAP. That is a great response that speaks volumes!! 

As Paul recounts: “I really enjoyed teaching the class and wish it could have lasted longer. I look forward to my next opportunity to teach and have fun with these great kids. I’m already planning lessons and activities.”
