Teaching English in a monastery in Kathmandu: an experience to remember!

Teaching English at a Monastery in KathmanduTeaching English to the child/junior monks at the Monastery has been an interesting, inspiring and educational experience for me. I only hope my pupils experienced it the same way.

The atmosphere in the monastery was very welcoming, peaceful and enjoyable and so were the people in it. At times, it was challenging to keep the kids in line by using only positive feedback and enthusiasm (because they see and undergo enough violence in their lives) but I think me and other volunteers have found a nice balance to make lessons entertaining, engaging as well as educational.

It has been very rewarding to see how much progress they’ve made in the three weeks I got to teach them. – Lammert Lettinga
