On Friday Steph came to visit our classroom. She has worked with communities in Lombok in Indonesia. Steph enjoys volunteering and teaches English to many of the children and adults in the village of Semabalun in Lombok.
She showed us many pictures of Indonesia and we learned so much about their culture. Steph taught us about their traditions, food and their schools. In the wet season, the children get carried across the river on their shoulders so that they can walk to school on the other side. It takes them about an hour each day.
Steph’s Visit on PhotoPeach
We wrote letters to the students in Semabalun as the Internet connection is not very reliable. Steph will translate these letters and post them to the children in the village. We hope that we will get a reply from them. Steph is going back to Indonesia soon to help these children with their English.
After leaving, we worked as teams and brainstormed all that we had now learned as a result of the visit from Steph. We really enjoyed the session and learned so much.
