Today was our first day working with the children at T.C.V. (Tibetan Children’s Village), a school for the local Tibetan children of Dharamsala. Naturally, we were all very excited to meet the children and get to know them. Our initial impression was how good their English actually was so our job of teaching English didn’t really seem like a job.
The children were all so excited to be with us and were very enthusiastic about learning more English. Getting over certain aspects of the language barrier was challenging but once we did we had a lot of fun and we played lots of games with them. I really loved connecting with the Tibetan children and getting to know just how different their childhood is than what we have experienced in the United States. We were even lucky enough to learn a couple words in Tibetan. I can’t wait for more mutual learning in the coming days. For now, Tashi Delek!!
