The main reason why I applied for this program was to improve my skills
of communication in English. But now, when half of a year has already passed
since I came here, Ifve gained not only what I tried to get at first, but
other things which I'd never imagined I could take through this program.
What I'm doing at my school is assisting the classes of PE(Physical Education),
IT(Information Technology and Computer), and ESOL classes for refugee kids.
Also, I'm making a database of the new books of the library at school into
a managing program, I also tutor at the Saturday school, and I was soccer
coach of a local community after-school program. I felt like taking as
many responsibilities as I could because I love my school(ICS). At the
same time, it is helpful for me to improve my communication skills. I have
such mutual, great relationships with other teachers, (the principal),
assistants and even some parents involved with the school. Besides, I'm
able to share and learn about different cultures, and experiences by having
informal conversations with host families during dinner. Sometimes I spend
time taking care of host's children, doing chores, sightseeing, and studying
English by myself. Especially, it was my enormous pleasure to cook for
my host or other teachers I know. What I'd like to say to the people who
are interested in and considering this program seriously is to come, feel
and be touched. Because it might change your life.
