English anyone?

On Wednesday evening, I had the privilege of meeting with a group of software programmists who all know English and meet each week to practice. It was the second time to meet with them.

Max, a young man I play basketball with, invited me to come. I shared with them about spring holidays and traditions.

It’s interesting to speak with people who know English. As far as I know, Kate is the only one that has been to the States. However, I think they are all motivated to learn English for their jobs and advancement in their careers.

A friend from Southwayside, Lonene, recently sent me a package and included a recipe for cookies using a cake mix. So, I took the opportunity to make the cookies and take the cookies for them to enjoy. Of course, the cookies were a hit with everyone. The drawback to taking desserts is that everyone always wants the recipes but most of the ingredients can’t be found here.

I had a great time talking with this group and look forward to meeting with them again in the future.

The next morning, I had been invited to speak to a group of students who are studying English in a private school. I also shared with them American spring holidays and traditions. Their level of understanding was great.

They asked me lots of questions about life in America and whether or not I have pets, etc. All of these students are in the 7th grade and are between the ages of 13-14 years old. They are interested in writing students in America who are the same age. All of them have email and internet. So, if you are interested in having a penpal from K’stan, please let me know and I will connect you with these students. It will be a great ministry for a young person in America!
