Our experience reading to these children was fantastic. They all seemed very interested in listening to the stories we read to them, and some were even capable of answering some comprehension questions we asked them on the spot. The teachers were also impressed by our good work, and invited us to come in and read to their students more often. My classmate and I will gladly do so. The only problem we can envison with these plans is how we will manage to coordinate our schedules, as the children have the same school hours as we do, and it would be hard to organise an after-school activity.
Still, it was an incredibly enriching experience, and I can’t wait to do it again!
