Having returned from Suzhou, I realised that there are two more posts I’d planned for but as of yet haven’t had a chance to complete.
This will be the first of the two that have been sitting in my ‘drafts’ for a couple of weeks now.
I titled it Confidence is Building as I wanted to share one of the most engaging and exciting workshops we ran on Day 9 of the 10-day course with our Chinese students. By this stage, absolutely, we knew that their confidence in holding conversations in English had grown exponentially. In this particular workshop, one of the tasks we asked of them was to work in small groups to produce a poster and short advertisement for a place they thought we should visit in and around Suzhou. They had 10 minutes to draw up the poster, one minute to prepare a ‘plug’ and one minute to present. Needless to say, we had a lot of fun. In fact, we saw they were having almost too much fun that we decided to make one for Melbourne and ‘plug’ that back at them!
We are very proud of what they were able to achieve in such a short span of time!
Thanks for reading 🙂
