Cynthia's Two Placements

Secondary School in Pokhara

I spent two weeks teaching English at the Shree Machhapuchre Secondary School and living with a host family. It was a wonderful experience. 

One thing to be ready for, I think is the noisiness of the classrooms and the students. I had expected Nepali children to be shy for some reason, so I was very surprised that they aren't at all. My soft voice was no match for the volume that they could reach. Still, they were sweet and some were truly eager to learn.
