Learning and Laughing

Anticipation, excitement, uncontrollable giggling and inquisitive eyes are what the English teachers of Burin are faced with when entering the classroom. There is nothing that gives such feelings of hope then seeing children rush from their classroom at school straight to a makeshift classroom within the village to learn English.

The children  are now nearing the end of their first semester and i think it is safe to say that we are all delighted by the success of the lessons. As numbers increased and chairs became like gold dust every day saw the face of a new child enter the classroom.

The target of the classes is conversational English and is taught to children from the ages of 7-16.  But what we see and feel from the children is so much more. Day after day we witness no less than 100% effort, they give us everything they have within the class room and are an absolute joy to laugh and learn with.
