Here are Dev’s thoughts about Vietnam in her own words. I did add a few punctuation marks this time and lead her a bit with the ideas, but the rest is all Dev! She had to do a power point for school too 🙂
Hi I’m Devon. I would like to share my story about my experience in schools in a different country.
Well, my family went on a educational trip to Vietnam. It was our first time going. While we were there we went to a University to teach English. It was fun and inspirational. I was at the university for the first day with my mom, sister and brother. My dad was teaching medical stuff. My mom and I went into several classes to teach “conversational English” Mainly we asked and answered questions, getting the students to speak English.
The next several days my mother and I went to a school for kids and teens with Down syndrome. They showed us different stuff they did to teach them. My mom talked about me and my education to teachers and students with their moms. They also gave us a tour of the school it was really helpful to see. The students gave us special gifts that they made by hand. They sew things to sell and carve key chain charms. There is only one school for the whole area.
The last day I was back at the university with Nana. When the last class came in I was pulled out of that classroom with Nana, into a another classroom! t That’s when I taught a whole class english all by myself. It was so much fun!
The next week we spent learning about Vietnam and having fun with my grandparents, yup, they went with us 🙂
I hope we get to do that again!
