Saturday July 28

The final day of the Role and Functions of NGOs (NGO 301) came and went – 10 weeks flies by! I always feel like it is so long at the beginning but then … suddenly we are at week 7!

I was a bit concerned with having only 4 participants – and only 1 native English speaker – as this class usually has 8 -10 people. This meant I had to drop all group activities, role-plays etc. UGH!

At first but It meant we got to be more engaged directly with each other and that part was very worthwhile. I also got to add some new things that relied more heavily on presentation.

Last class presentations on olive oil in Palestine and street children in Ecuador were also very interesting.

Parting is always such sweet sorrow …
