Between Learning and Teaching

I was once a volunteer at GFC and this has been one of my most unforgettable experience. With the attractive natural environment, a team of passionate colleagues, and most importantly those intelligent and hard-working students, I enjoyed doing this job in such a beautiful campus.

I worked mostly as a teaching assistant, helping teachers with class logistics and conducting English tutoring. I also helped organize some learning activities, for example, everyday English corner. In addition to those underprivileged students with financial difficulties or visual impairment, we also provide training for middle school English teachers to enhance their speaking skills and teaching practices. Moreover, I even contributed to a variety of administrative issues, such as document translation, new report and so on.

It was such an exciting life at GFC with a group of kindhearted international volunteers and exposure to local minority culture.

What would you improve about this program?
Since it is newly built school, it will take some time to systematize the teaching and learning practices.
