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.

The Americans are Coming!!!

We were excited when we found out that Peace Corps would loan us 13 trainees from Group 119 for the first day of our 2-day English Camp. Of course, the village was excited too, being that we are the sum total of Americans they have ever seen! We started with a game of Human Bingo which forced the students to fill in a bingo card by reading a question in English that the Peace Corps members had to answer and then sign their names in the box. The students were scared sh**less, but soon warmed up to the friendly smiles exhibited by the trainees. Soon, it was time for a break before heading to 6 different sites that the trainees would perform five 50-minute sessions of an English activity.
