The other day I talked about 'lonely' teachers.
Recently we really should not need to feel this way, as traveling is getting cheaper and cheaper.
Mila, from Czech Republic took the change to come (more than 7000 km) to stay with teachers from Japan for a week.
Additionally I organized 3 nights of homestay for her, at my student's homes.
Students hosting teachers
What I hadn't imagined is, that it would be such a huge win for these students of mine, even before Mila arrived.
They were excited from the moment they decided to have her come. They asked me every week about Mila's favorite foods, her daughter's name, things she liked or disliked...
They practiced English at home, more than they ever had, and included their families as well.
Now, that she has returned to Czech, these kids come and want to play those games Mila has taught them. They explain them to the other kids.
So, I was thinking: How many 'wins' did we have?
Win for me, win for you (Mila), win for all the teachers involved and win for my students. Not to go into further details, that is 4!
Any plans coming to Japan?😉
