The first day of my TEFL teacher training course today was great fun. Although it meant an early start and a late finish, the time really flew by.
The teacher is great, the topics are bringing back lessons from school days and the other students are a really good bunch of local people.
My partner for the day, who also comes from the Bournemouth area, is a Nichiren Buddhist, so apart from the English, we had plenty to talk about. The work was pretty relentless, one topic flowing seamlessly into another, though we did manage to take a stroll, en mass, in the lunchtime fresh air and sunshine.
I know I’ve mentioned it in previous posts, but I love being immersed in the world of learning. With a bit of homework to complete before tomorrow’s second installment, it has been a long day, but I am looking forward to a whole lot more of the same tomorrow.
This is the perfect example of making causes for the effects I want to see, and I promise to let you know how it goes.
