Could you please tell us about some of your most enjoyable moments of the trip?
The most enjoyable times for me were interacting with and getting to know the students and witnessing how their English improves. It was also fun to be able to bond with different people my age from different parts of the world.
Which were the highlights of the lessons, cultural excursions and outdoor activities?
There was a focus on science activities and labs that had the students focused, intrigued, and engaged. We also played numerous sport activities like soccer, basketball, and dodge ball.
