Kiwi in Korea 9 - home, High School and Fashion shows
Gah, I'm still conflicted. I have changed K's ticket and she goes home in a couple of weeks. I felt sick - I feel sick sending her off by herself (though she swears she will be okay) and I feel sick at thought of letting my High School down. I have a hugh amount of respect for the teachers and the students there and apart from severe bouts of homesickness (which you have witnessed) I like teaching there.
Here are some photos of one of my classes. These photos will go on the High School website so I don't feel bad putting them on here but I have made this fans and friends only. This class is the lowest Grade one class and it is considered one of the hardest to teach but I really like them, they are sweet (and hardcore, they keep Korean Stag Beetles as pets and race them). They have a really nice energy to work with. Anyhuu this week we had a Fantastic Fashion Show where they had 20 minutes to make clothes out of newspaper in teams and dress a model and have a commentator explain what they were wearing in English.
The toughest part of teaching is coming up with activities that are engaging. I spend a lot of time on the net looking - thankfully there is a hugh online community of esl/efl teachers sharing their ideas.
