Teaching English in Delhi NCR

Today three students went to a school in Delhi NCR to teach the children several subjects for the first time. Although communication in English for some of the children was limited, the volunteers explained that they were still able to substantially teach the children subject material in mathematics and English. Most participants with our program usually teach English if the children in their project location are less exposed to English. We have hosted many volunteers who have been able to effectively teach English to the children, and interacting with the volunteers really helps the children develop an ear for a proper English accent as well, coming from a native speaker of the language. Some of the children's English language proficiency is quite remarkable, after many hours of practicing the language with foreigners who come to assist with our programs. The children feel very lucky to be acquainted with many people from many different cultures.
