Day 109: Ein Praktikum

The Gymnasium (school) where I am doing a weekly internship

I was surprised by how much I liked being in the classroom. I think it was something so different from what I do as the constant student, even though it still takes place in the classroom. It offered some challenges, as the kids asked me how I would translate mitmachen or what the past participle of choose is. The funny thing is that the 7th graders often found better answers than I did. I have never had to learn English from books, so I have a hard time expressing the difference between the chose and have chosen; I can only say when it sounds wrong.

The energy that the kids had was astounding and a little overwhelming. It’s only energizing for me since I’m there for an hour. I think that it’s going to be a refreshing something to add to my life here.
