There’s been a lot happening lately. To summarize quickly:
- Regular classes ended the middle of July. After that, I taught two weeks of half-day “camps”. The first week was for students. The second was for general (non-English) teachers and people from the community. Both weeks were much easier than I’d expected.
- The first week of August, Erin and I taught classes at a teacher-certification course in Gangneung. Our topic was “Listening and Speaking Activities”. We didn’t really know what that mean, and neither did our students. It went alright, but was surprisingly stressful. We were well-paid, however. The extra money from this week completely paid for our trip to Bangladesh
- We went to Bangladesh! This was a hell of a trip. We were only there for nine days, to attend a friend’s wedding. It was quite an experience. I won’t go into details now, but look for a longer update (with pictures) tomorrow.
Our time here is winding down quickly, and we’ve got lots to do. Packages must get shipped home, paperwork must be filled out, the apartment needs to be cleaned, and eventually we’ll have packing to do. We’ve also got one more week of teaching, and some additional grad school work to accomplish before we leave.
We’re both pretty excited for the next step.
