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.

6th Grade English Camp

We are helping Kate, another Peace Corps Volunteer with a 3-day English Camp at her school. Students in grades 1-5 have no school for 3 days, while 6th graders from five other surrounding schools attend the camp. We traveled four hours by bus to arrive in Kate's village. Another volunteer traveled 9 hours to get here! It's a special occasion to have four native English speakers at a school, so we are treated like royalty. Kate is leading one of the teams in a cheer that they have to perform. There are 5 teams of 25 students who will play a variety of games in English to help alleviate the fear of speaking Englsih.
