It is the first time in 16 years that I will not be spending the Spring Festival with my family. I originally planned to go to the Philippines with two other people. However, due to Visa issues, I embarked on my first trip to another country by myself. After some setbacks, I came to study in Monol for most of my vacation.
I spent five months in Monol language school where I studied General ESL for a month and then enrolled in the IELTS course for the following four months. When I first came here, I could not even go to a restaurant because my English was so bad.
In this issue, there are 53 new students! They are from various places such as China, Taiwan, South Korean, Japan, and Vietnam. Six of them are from South Korea! Because of the diverse age range, I can have schoolmates that are between 5-50 years old! There really is no end to learning and you can learn regardless of age. I am very curious as to how the children learn.
