Central America | Honduras | North Coast | Trujillo – do as the locals do
I spend 3 hours on Tuesday trying to figure out how to teach my class how to simplify and compare factions. It really is difficult enough in German or English….
I eventually got my Spanish teacher to help me with the preparation and to tell me which words to use. It made such a difference! It is such an amazing feeling when these little kids get really excited about doing maths exercises and learn something new that I managed to teach them. When the class finished, a few of them asked me if they could finish their exercise sheet outside in the playground so there was a little group of them sitting on the grass thinking and working really hard on their exercises.
My Spanish has definitely improved since I changed my Spanish teacher. Last night in the bar I was chatting to 3 Peruvians in Spanish all night, they invited me to go and eat guinea pig at the weekend after my birthday… GOT TO DO WHAT THE LOCALS DO, I guess.
Oh, yesterday the doctor came and examined some of the kids, they were screaming as if he was eating them alive. We had found two little brothers earlier that day begging in the street, they were really dirty and didnt have any shoes. One of them had a really bad eye infection. The doctor gave him medicine, we fed them and gave them new clothes and they were playing football with the others totally rapped up in the game. Some of the kids here are not THAT poor but if we find some like those two boys, it really feels like we are making a difference.
Unfortunately only the older one (8 years old) came back today.
His brother (5 years old) is very shy
