Day Three: Shimabara TPRS 2011
Third day was another home run! The teachers taught an embedded reading to the “class” of adults and kids who showed up for the English lesson. Many of the students were here for the second day, since they had been invited to come for one day or two days of free lessons. What is most impressive is that everyone, and that means EVERY person, understood every single word of the reading! By the end it was a text of 457 words and they completely understood it! The teachers were excellent and they all succeeded. It was so awesome. I just loved it. We ended with a Spanish class taught by Cameron, to just us, the conference participants. What a great feeling to be part of this huge community effort. I feel like Shimabara is my second home! The photo shows students and teachers from today’s workshop.
