Visiting Hua Shan Elementary School with the other ETAs (English Teaching Assistants)
Hua Shan Elementary School is South of where I live. It is near the airport and I will be taking the MRT and riding a bike to get to the school. Ashley is going to take
Me and Ashley!
The program administrators announced the matching of the local English teachers (LETs) and the English Teaching Assistants (ETAs) today. The pairing was based on the LETs rankings of who they wanted and also on the ETAs' preferences. After they announced the pairings, we all headed to lunch. After lunch, the Fulbright program coordinators planned Karaoke (KTV- Karaoke Television) for us! Ashley drove me to lunch and to KTV on her scooter. This was my first time on a scooter and I held onto Ashley so tight. I think she could tell I was a bit nervous because I kept on saying, "Woah! We're going so fast. Woah! Woah!"
This was my second time in Taiwan singing karaoke. Ashley and I sang, "My Heart Will Go On" by Celine Dion... Check out our pose =D
Karaoke was a lot of fun. Oh, I almost forgot. Hua Shan elementary school also has an arcade room with pool table, ping pong table, basketball-shooting arcade, and many other fun games. It's known as the fun room and it's open to both teachers and students. Isn't that great? I can have fun with the students inside and outside the classroom.
