English classes 2012
English classes have started again at Westfalia Orphanage! A huge thanks to Alex and Business Links institute in Lima for donating all the English texts for the children. A big thanks also goes out to the teachers at Business Links who donate their Saturdays to go all the way to Cieneguilla to teach the children (over 90 minutes each way by public transport!).
Two classes run concurrently and we have different teachers come each week to give the kids a better learning experience and to allow them to hear different accents (sadly we only have one Australian representative to teach them the real way to speak!).
The kids love the classes and it’s also a great way to teach them a skill and give them an edge when it comes time to look for work amongst the almost 9 million people in Lima, Peru.
