English Leadership - Community Service

20 November 2015

For English Leadership we have taught Vietnamese children who have little English language. 

They were shy at first but we grew on them and made a bond.  In the club we taught various topics, for example, how to introduce themselves and to tell other people what they like and dislike. We could not really communicate well so we used drawings and flashcards to make them understand what topic we were focusing on that week. We also did activities such as Charades, Duck, Duck Goose and so many others.  We experienced what teachers have to go through in order to teach a lesson. I’ve been so happy teaching them, it was such a great experience. I hope that I will be able to teach them again next term or in secondary.

In Term 1, I joined the English Leadership Club were we get to teach students who are younger and also to experiment with the feelings of being a teacher.  I learnt that that it is difficult to teach students with limited English, as we need to repeat words many times. We needed someone to translate instructions into Vietnamese so the children could understand what we were trying to teach them about.  This term we taught the topics: Greetings, Feelings, Animals and my group also taught about body parts.  I don’t know if there will be English Leadership Club next term, but if there is, I’ll join agian!
