Practice Month Part 2

On my first day of practice I had only one group of students. ‘Oh, that’s easy!’ Yeahhhhh I’ve never been more naïve in my life. It was a group of 7 pre-school children (5–6 y.o). I was in a wonderful mood, had my lesson plan ready…

Practice Month Part 1

Hellooo, my dear friends! Long time no se (duh, almost a month!)

I have so much to tell you. So, get some cocoa with marshmallows and prepare for an interesting story:)

Destination of America

Hi there! Yesterday I took a test on general knowledge of American history. It’s quite a miserable result, but as we were told earlier today — ’It’s ok to make mistakes’. A small remark — it’s ok to make mistakes as long as you learn from them. I’m glad I had a chance to expand my knowledge!
