Chaos, laughter, and children

Today we spent most of the day in Tarnowskie Góry helping teach some of the children English.  After the usual cold cuts for breakfast at Daniel's church, we sped to Asia's house (we were running a tad late) and then followed her to the school.  Daniel dropped us off there and Asia gave us another rundown of what was going to happen.  Nothing really prepared us for what happened (which is basically always true when making plans that involve children).  When we walked into the main school building and there was a banner that read "American Day."  Talk about feeling like movie stars!  A lovely lady named Dominica was introduced to us and right away she gave us the itinerary, explained the activity, and then the kids arrived.  Karleigh, Sarah, and Jordyn were each assigned a group of kids and they were in charge of helping the students understand the words and teach them how to pronounce them correctly.  It was Carrie's job to listen to all of the children pronounce certain words and to approve tasks if they had done them well.  There were three rounds of this activity with three different groups of children.

After a morning of chaos and laughter, we went to a traditional Polish restaurant and (as Dr. E would say) it was "so good!"  We sat around the table with Asia and Kasia eating and talking about life, food, and cultural differences for about two hours. We then went back to the school, but this time we went into the building that held language lessons.  The name of the program is called Be Clever.  Dominica also ran this flawlessly.  Karleigh and Sarah helped tutor students who's ages ranged from 3-16, and Jordyn and Carrie helped with 7-8 year-olds.  It was awesome to get to see just how much these children have learned in such a short time!  The last thing that we did at the school was talk with six high schoolers about American life and the English language.  They taught us some interesting Polish facts and even a couple Polish words, and we told them some fun facts about America and Malone.  We all watched some videos on accents and slang words, talked about our favorite music, and just got to know a little bit about each other.

After a long day helping teach lessons to the students, we went back to Daniel's church for supper.  The girl's had "Daniel withdrawal" because they had not seen him or heard his laugh since breakfast that morning.  Aye chi caramba it was a long time!  Overall, it was a great day and the girls enjoyed getting to help teach Polish students English and talk to them about America.

  2. IEEE Project Domain management in software engineering is distinct from traditional project deveopment in that software projects have a unique lifecycle process that requires multiple rounds of testing, updating, and faculty feedback. A IEEE Domain project Final Year Projects for CSE system development life cycle is essentially a phased project model that defines the organizational constraints of a large-scale systems project. The methods used in a IEEE DOmain Project systems development life cycle strategy Project Centers in India provide clearly defined phases of work to plan, design, test, deploy, and maintain information systems.


    This is enough for me. I want to write software that anyone can use, and virtually everyone who has an internet connected device with a screen can use apps written in JavaScript. JavaScript Training in Chennai JavaScript was used for little more than mouse hover animations and little calculations to make static websites feel more interactive. Let’s assume 90% of all websites using JavaScript use it in a trivial way. That still leaves 150 million substantial JavaScript Training in Chennai JavaScript applications.
