Teaching ESOL to grown ups

Our International students from Sri Lanka, Russia and China. The man in yellow is Jon. He is practising to teach ESOL.This photo was taken after we baked a self saucing chocolate cake.

That year, we had Korean, Hong Kong , China and New Calidonia students.George from Tonga.

Mei, Chiang from China.

Eric and Mary are pastors of Renacer Church in Co'rdoba Argentina. 

"Bokko" with a Korean student, Celine.

"Bokko" the clown came all the way from Brazil to entertain us.  The children shouted "Eu te amo." It was sad that "Bokko"aka Marcelo will be returning home, but I am sure the children will remember him for a long time.

The world is getting so easily connected by the ease in flying and the internet. It is so important to teach duality. The latest topic I taught was travelling and the students had fun learning to be polite when complaining about a faulty hotel/motel room.
