By QU Sitong, Voluntourist at the IHF Bali center
This is the second week I’ve spent at the Bali center.
On Monday, my partner was ill and I found myself having to teach a large class of students – all by myself, for the first time! I felt good about my work as the class seemed to run very well. During the class, I taught the students some basic vocabulary which they remembered quickly. I asked them to stand infront of the board and write down one new word they had learnt at a time. In order to memorise the words better, we played the game ‘hang man’ which the children really enjoyed. Through the game, the students remembered all the words happily.
In another class, I asked the children to review words for describing their family members. To make my class more interesting, I drew a family tree. The children liked this very much.
At the end of this week, I helped the students draw a poster for their class sponsor. We surrounded it around a picture of Bali. The children love to be creative and we had a lot of fun together.
