Teaching English on a voluntary program in Madurai, India

 

I'm having a great time here in Madurai and cannot believe I'm almost half way through the placement already! I'm really enjoying the routine of school during the day and bakery straight after to stock up on cakes and pringles!

The day at school generally consists of taking lessons and free periods where I plan lessons. I'm doing kindergarten to 9th standard and the little ones are certainly a challenge! There is quite a language barrier between me and the staff (and children!) but the teachers are still very friendly. The school servant doesn't speak a word of English but she always greets me with a smile every morning.

The children (younger ones mainly) can be quite badly behaved but that's part of the challenge and experience. Most are eager to learn and like to run up to me and show their work!

The Travellers’ house is great and Sumathy, the cook, is really pleasant and loves her Bollywood music! Pradeep is always around to make sure everything is running smoothly so we're being well looked after.

It's all good and I'm already thinking about future placements!
