Maharagama Youth Teaching
In the first lesson, as they speak relatively good English, we did conversational roleplay with them - how to book an appointment on the phone - and taught them the English words for hairdressing tools and styles. This week we began to help them with CVs, for some crazy reason any job interview they have is all in English. Unlike in the orphanages, the youths are there because they are really keen to learn and you can see the enthusiasm in their eyes at having a real English person stood teaching them, which makes working with them really enjoyable. After the volunteers who teach the beauticians getting facials, I think a new hair-do is in order next week!
