Spanish lessons in the dining hall, per the kids' requests!

Last Friday I had the most amazing day at work. I got to lead ‘special time’ at Faith Roots International (the City of Refuge school). I chose to teach the kids some Spanish by translating anything they wanted to ask me. It was supposed to be something very informal, but the kids were so enthused they asked me to write the terms on the board for them. By then we had already packed up for the day since ‘special time’ is their free period before heading home, so the kids scrambled to set up the large whiteboard for me to write, and raced around the schoolhouse in search of paper and pens to take notes with. They were so excited that they even began arguing amongst themselves because they couldn’t decide whether they wanted to learn the names of fruits or of animals that afternoon.

The story gets even better. (More …)
