Two in Thailand

After raising three children and watching them graduate from college, Bob and Carol decided to leave the educational field and pursue a dream that had been put on hold for 35 years (since graduationg from the University of Northern Iowa). "Two in Thailand" is the journal dedicated to that dream - to serve in the Peace Corps. This is a personal blog. The opinions expressed within do not necessarily represent the views of the Peace Corps or the United States Government.

Celebrating the End of Adult English Class!!

We taught an adult English class on Monday and Wednesday evenings for 3 months. Some of the adults really want to learn to speak English and were a delight to teach. We put a lot of effort into making our lessons meaningful and fun (sanook) --- but in the end we realized that we received much more than we gave. The "students" are holding gifts that Carol prepared for them - but the "gifts" they gave us were generosity, acceptance, and smiles! We were the students and they were the teachers!!!

They all look pretty happy about their gifts or perhaps they just love having their picture taken!
