During our excursion, Van suggested undertaking the English lesson we had planned, which involved collecting items from the forest to compare using the target language. However, there seemed to be a general feeling of lethargy among the group of teachers and rousing anyone to perform such tasks seemed out of the question.
It was a pleasant field trip, but it left Van and I worried at how easy it is here for them to brush off their lesson. Because our teacher trainee is also their friend, there is a distinct lack of authority. He describes his role as a leader not a teacher, because of the negative connotations he has with the word "teacher". However, I feel that a teacher should generally be a facilitator, but also a task-master. Without encouragement, few people would chose to study over doing something ‘fun’ or ‘relaxing.’ Even with 4 foreigners present, there was very little English spoken over the course of the outing.
