Legalize It

The New Factory at Xikang Road holds a Legal Graffiti event everyAdd Video Saturday. They provide a big white wall with all the markers you need.

Join them next Saturday May 16th with a bunch of kids from the Shanghai French School.

I did mine yesterday, a teeny weeny fish in the corner.

English Class on a Saturday Morning

My neighbour, Leslie, invited me to volunteer teaching a few classes in a migrant school in Pudong, Shanghai this weekend. Their school is not fancy, but I would say it is in a very good condition for the students to get good educations.

I've always enjoyed teaching, so of course I won't miss this chance.
We review with the what they already learned from class during the week, and add a few extra lessons of singing, games, and vocabulary.

I had a very good time with them. They're very very smart!
They know a lot of the words in the textbook and they are very eager to learn more.
Of course, some of the are too shy but I give them extra points for waking up early on a Saturday morning to learn English.
