Yunnan Day 3: English Lesson @ 三育学校

How did it go? any challenges you faced and how was it overcome?

I think that it went relatively well taking into account that our Chinese was realllly challenged. We just tried our best.

What I noticed is that some are definitely strong in English than others. A girl even asked us how to read a passage of words.

Why do you think there is a disparity in language between city and rural areas?

Lack of resources is a main factor I guess. They don’t have enough funding and teachers to continually teach them English.

What do you think can be done to make this more sustainable? should this be carried on next year?

More sessions of English with them. And also more preparation in the method of instructions. But why even teach English to the rural schools? When they won’t have the chance to use it.
