Another Friday and another afternoon of rain and power cuts. As I keep saying, I can't believe the weekend has come around again!
The afterschool class on Friday is the one that has the most knowledge so they are actually the most challenging class as they pick everything up really quickly and know most words. They struggle with grammar but I can't teach them that as you would need to translate what is being said - can't draw grammar or point to it in a book!! Anyway I did "shapes" today and got them to read a page each from a book. It was only a children's book but I was very impressed by their level of reading. I've noticed the other classes can only pronounce the word if you say it to them first, but this class is able to sound the words and say them before you do.
Gorie, one of the helpers in the kitchen, has asked for some help with her English so I said I would start next Saturday. She did say that she would come around at 7am tomorrow - as you can imagine I'll arrange a more suitable hour!
