Most of January was 3 weeks of teaching an intensive program at the school called the “ESL Program”. I was in charge of the cooking program for the pre-basic and basic students, i.e. those who could barely string a sentence together.
But, you don’t need too much English in the kitchen, as show works better than tell. We made quiche, bento, cupcakes, brownies and pizza. They were 3 of the most stressful weeks of my life, but worth it. It’s always good to go through those experiences, just to prove to yourself that you’ll come out the other side just fine. It’s definitely made me appreciate teaching smaller classes!
