English Class Graduation!

Well, the first installment of “Libby’s English Class” has been completed.  We offered an 8 week course in Basic Beginner English.  Many of the children knew about 1/2 of the subject matter from their classes in school, but this was a first time for the adults.  It was fun having both children and adults in the same class.

Last Tuesday finished the 8 week course.  For the final class we had a few new lessons:

GERRI TEACHING

Gerri’s Bingo game was a big hit.

JOHN & MARY

Guest teachers John and Mary teaching everyone the Hokey Pokey.

FERNANDA

We had a great time conducting this class.  It was a fair amount of work, lots of fun and a great way to help out and meet some local San Clemente folk.  Libby, Gerri and I also learned a bunch of Spanish as we were teaching.  We will take a 1 week break and start up again with an intermediate class.

Figuring it out… 1 class at a time
