We did it! Today we received our TESL certificates from the Colorado China Council, to teach English in China! Today was also party day at the school, where we displayed various talents and skits.
I participated in a skit with one group of teachers for the Chinese kids, and they thought it was hilarious.
Here are a couple of students from my class...
Two of the girls got in front of the class and did songs and readings.
Tim, being silly in one of the skits...
One of the boys, telling a joke for the class.
Peter and Tim, doing the "Down by the Banks of the Hanky Panky" camp song.
More talents! Jokes and music.
Next, a game of Simon Says; a big favorite among the kids! Eleanor and Danielle led the game.
Finally, the teachers showed them how to do the Hokey Pokey. Sue's on the far left with Sophie, and Jack's in the center.
This evening, we had a nice banquet with all of the other teachers, where they handed out our certificates and we got to thank our teachers for the great job they did.
Tomorrow, it's on to Hangzhou!! I'm not sure when I'll have an internet connection again, so it may be a few days before I can blog. Keep checking back!
