Teaching English

One of the expats, Jimmy Ricks, asked for volunteers to help with teaching English at a school in Arenales. He and Lisa were already teaching there. Joy and Leo volunteered to go in on Monday to observe. I said I would help with making materials or researching on the internet what to teach and when. Leo is bigger than life so some of the kids said we see you on the bus a lot. He said the next time you see me, I will expect you to greet me in English. Yesterday, we were on the bus and two kids got on and greeted us in English and he told them good job in his crazy boisterous way. They were all laughing. Below is the school where they volunteer:

Of course Leo the volleyball coach found some kids playing Ecuavolley, a volleyball game played with a soccer ball.

Leo enjoyed being there and hopes to continue to help out. Since then a few others have volunteered as well.

    • It is wonderful. Wish I could, but I have got to learn Spanish. It is not so easy to learn Spanish at this age. Heck, I’m having trouble remembering things as it is. Today, Leo lost his glasses and the phone and we went out tonight and we had to go out without them. At the party, I left my camera in the restaurant. See what I mean–old age is creeping in.
