Anyways, I'll give my best.
So for the duration of my stay I'll be doing an internship at the Mandume Language Centre, which is a language school in the centre of Windhoek. All my students are young adults from Angola who stay here to improve their English.
Just as everything else seems to be a bit more chaotic over here, we were thrown into our classes without any really preparations on our first day. Swim and survive! We're doing pretty well so far ;)
|I started my work together with Valerio and we'll also finish together. During our first week we always went to the craft café which is just around the corner. They have pretty amazing food....but by now I'm just making my own lunch (aka: sandwich).|
|Some weird drink I got served the first day we went there....|
|After school, it's normally grocery time...|
|Observe the Italian and his hunting skills with me (haha I guess I am really bad with my picture stalking)...|
|In his natural environment...|
|More lunch impressions from our first week. It really is a touristy place.|
|Valerio is calling me Asian by now because I literally take pictures of everything ;)|
|One happy Italian|
|And that was my treat last Friday, after surviving the first week :)|
|And just to keep it real. This is what my lunch looks like now ;)|
So all in all it is a lot of work but also a welcome challenge. Teaching two hours is not as bad as I thought it would be but it still is some time you need to fill. And every of my evenings is filled with lesson planning and grammar research. But I'll definitely take something home from it.
So that is a more or less concentrated and well summarised impression of my work here. Now I'll be back to lesson planning (and vocal singing sessions ;P)
