Yesterday was my first real experience creating a lesson plan. We were split up into five groups, into pairs actually, to present our lessons to the class. Kate and I taught our lesson on “Describing Family and Friends.” We had a few fun activities, and a reading and writing exercise. We received lots of positive feedback, and great advice from our instructor Pi Bobby.
I had such a great time teaching and designing the lesson plan. I feel extremely lucky to be where I am. Teaching is exciting, fun, and rewarding. And, cultural exchange, which is particularly successful in the “Land of Smiles”, can produce the kind of social progression our world dreams of. I am in Thailand. I will be a teacher. I am experiencing cultural exchange. I am grateful.
