On my second day at R.E.C, my two students and I had a productive 3 hour meeting in which we discussed the merits of having bi-weekly meetings with the full complement of teaching staff.
The head monk of R.E.C wanted us to visit his native village and meet all of their very big family! My other student had a slight cold coming, but the monk was determined that we would undertake the 5 hour boat journey and like it! At 5 am I grabbed my scant belonging, had some breakfast, and we set off in the boat.
At sunrise, we travelled by a small van cab with an open back with two benches either side for passengers. My student who had the best English sat shotgun with me in the cab of the van while my poor other student had a 4 hour trip open to the elements in the back.
This unfortunately suffered from the blight that I refer to as Myanmar time.
On Friday, I began my teacher training at CEAL: The Center for Education, Arts and Literature in Sittwe.
It is 11am; I have visited a pagoda, swum in the sea, met 5 of the REC teachers and eaten a fish on a stick. A BBQ fish I might add.
I asked to observe a 1.5 hour English lesson that the talented artist was running at CEAL. In addition to having a jealousy-inducing artist talent, the young man studied for a year in Yangon under the tuition of an American native speaker and speaks impressively good English with a noticeable American twang.
