Week in Review

This week flew by. In our class, we tackled difficult grammar, such as articles and prepositions. We gave a test Thursday, and we asked the students to prepare short presentations for review. They took the assignment seriously, preparing games, handouts, posters and other materials. It was incredible to see our students -- who will be teaching English in Peruvian schools this year -- really take charge of the classroom and demonstrate their understanding of difficult concepts.

We are working full-time here, with classes each morning and lesson preparation every afternoon. With a one-hour commute back to Pisac, we are lucky to be home by 6 p.m., and more often it´s 7 p.m. By the time we eat dinner, it´s almost time for bed. No wonder the week went so quickly. But we´re having so much fun, too!

After two intense weekends of travel, we´re taking it easy this weekend. We´re going to a salsa lesson this afternoon, and we´re planning to attend mass in Quechua (the local Amerindian language) on Sunday, but other than that, we´re just going to relax.
