Learning by doing
The online English lessons give us the possibility to stay in contact with the children we worked with. We learn about their successes in school and about competitions, about their dreams and likes and dislikes. Our experiences show that the lessons with the volunteers in which the kids are encouraged to speak English prove to be a lot of fun and extra motivational. After our first year at Desert Rose Children Center (Mongolia 2018), we found our children to be much more engaged in actual English conversation, being a lot more confident speaking to their friends, the volunteers.
