‘You look weird,’ our students exclaimed when Brock and I walked into Intermediate Adult English at the start of November. I didn’t think we looked weird. I figured we looked distinguished. I guess I thought wrong. ‘Why did you grow hair on your lip?’ they asked through disapproving giggles. This was a great opportunity to explain to our students what Movember is all about.

We have had a very tight knit group in our Adult English class. As was mentioned on the blog before, our class helped us in making the traditional drink for our ‘Dia de Los Difuntos.’ Furthermore, about half our class regularly rode the bus home with us at the end of the day, joking and trading colloquialisms and cultural observations along the way with us.
Having now completed the course we feel exceedingly proud: our students did well and the course went smoothly overall. We were really excited to give our students ‘graduation certificates’ and are quite eager to see who returns for the next round of courses. All in all, it’s been a great experience and I have learned immeasurably, given that this is my first time teaching English.
Hope all is well with our readers out there. Stay classy!
