Teaching English in Goa
I worked in a government school in a small village, where I taught the equivalent of the first year of primary school. The class did not have a permanent teacher, and the school was somewhat lacking in equipment. This, coupled with the fact that the children were a variety of different ages (due to some being held behind) and worked at a wide range of different ability levels, created a challenge for myself and my fellow volunteers.
The main obstacle was language - as some spoke very little English, and we were not always able to have a translator with us. I, however, soon found myself learning some Hindi phrases, and I would urge anyone not to be put off by the issue of language as it was not the barrier I thought it might be.
The work with the children involved creating maths worksheets, basic counting and English phrases. We also practiced the alphabet, and devised various creative activities such as drawing and colouring (this always proved popular). Working with very young children, I felt it was importnt to create a fun working environment, frequently employing the use of songs and games to help teach a certain topic. This proved particularly effective at re-inforcing basic English words.
Some preparation was required prior to each lesson, but it was incredibly satisfying to see the progress made by the children as a result. One boy in the class struggled with aspects of the work; a personal highlight for me was seeing him write his name unaided for the first time.
