School’s out, and our summer music courses are in session! Through a two-week day camp, local kids of all ages get a crash course in the fundamentals of piano, guitar, choir, and music theory.
This past week, we put up two posters featuring basic English phrases in each of the classrooms at the twelve schools that participate in our Children’s English Program. We’ve been blown away by how quickly the kids have integrated this vocabulary and are excited to see teachers encouraging its use throughout the week.
The students in the small fishing village of Chamela are now almost two months in to their first year of English lessons, as we have recently added this community to our service area. There are only 24 students in their elementary school, so all of the 2nd through 6th graders come together in one group for their biweekly English classes.
