internship - BU Yun Chelsea, LAM Sze Wing Eileen

During this 10-week internship, we have met a bunch of lovely kids and sincere friends on this foreign but enthusiastic soil. It was a challenging duty but also interesting and rewarding. We have learned much about the daily life and communication of Spain-born Chinese students from everyday interaction. It helped us fine-tune our teaching plan to cater for their specific learning needs by applying the theories we have learned to first-hand teaching.
