Summer School at Xayadeth

Xayadeth college is running a summer English program during the school holidays. There are 2 classes in the morning and 2 in the evening - a beginner class for children and a more advanced class for older students who have already learnt some English. The summer school started 2 weeks ago and so far in the beginner class we have been learning about classroom objects, fruit and prepositions. The kids are really enthusiastic and you can often hear them talking in English from down the road!

One of the activities the kids have been doing is to draw pictures using the words they have learnt and then write sentences, for example: 'The pineapple is on the chair'. Some of the artwork is impressive and its great to see them so focused on what they are doing. This week they have started learning colours.
