I have finished all my teaching jobs for the summer semester!
For the last class, I brought some Japanese snacks and juice, which we enjoyed for the last 30 minutes of the lesson.
For the past six months, since I started my language courses in January, I have had wonderful experiences in the classes, great interactions with the students, and good opportunities for reflecting on my teaching styles and learning. I made teaching plans for all classes and regularly made notes of how everything had gone. In my blog, I can see how hard it was to make teaching plans on the weekends while writing my thesis chapters. This experience has given me the best memories from 2017.
