    YMCA Art School's English Class

    Zhou Yun Hai, Director of the YMCA's Art School, asked if I would be willing to help with the English class offered by the Art School on Saturday afternoons. Today, I met with Lu Haitao (Henry), the teacher of the class, and then assisted him with the class which included two 40 minute sessions with a ten minute rest between them. Henry is an English teacher in another school.

    The class has six students -- one pre-schooler, one fourth grader and the rest in between. Today's class focused on learning the English words for selected animals -- cow, bird, dog, cat, tiger, lion, peacock, panda and frog and on learning to write the letters k through p. Below are Henry and I with the six students.

    Henry asked if we assigned home work in the English classes at the YMCA School in Jintang. He said, if you don't assign home work, parents will think you are not a very good teacher.

    Thanks to Zhou Yun Hai for the pictures included in this post.
