A Willingness to Learn

Arriving in Hosahalli on June 11, Marko and I were greeted with open arms. Located on the outskirts of two wildlife reserves, the area is relatively untouched and consumed with natural beauty. However, with the strong willed nature of the folks at SVYM, they have managed to build and maintain an outstanding school for students of all ages.To the the left is an image of some of the classrooms of the primary school, fully furnished with desks, chairs,and chalkboards. It truly was amazing to see a school with such great resources existing in such a remote area!


However, where I would be teaching Spoken English for the next two weeks is at the Vivekananda Teacher Training Research Center, a school comparable to a college in the United States. My students were between 19-25 years old (me being 20 years old myself!) so connecting with them on a personal level was a little bit easier. On the right is a picture of my students in the classroom, where they were all more than eager to learn both English and about the rest of the world. For the next two weeks, these will be my students. As much as I have to offer and teach to them, I know that I will learn just as much (if not more) from them!
