One-Day Teacher Training at my High School

My teacher training with 5 other PCVs. Startedvas a training for 42 and then on the day of the training the number grew to 200!! However, the more the merrier. The teachers and the PCVs had a great time, and everyone learned something new.

So by "differentating" my instruction and giving her a chair to stand on she was able to reach the blanket. :)

Our lovely captain!

It seems like its going to be a great day, right? Sunny day...

Well, then we disappointed children, I fell down in the coral and skinned my knee, had to fight off dogs to defend our food (they were really sad looking dogs though), our boat broke, and it rained ALL day. But at least the boat ride was nice!

Hi, sorry for spamming you, I'm a Cebu native obsessed with Western civilization and wishing to meet up or speak with Peace Corps Volunteers for language and knowledge exchange. I'm a native speaker of BinisaYA' (Cebuano), and I'm fluent in Tagalog and English. I speak English almost like an American, and I speak the basics of French, German, Italian, Lithuanian, Mandarin, Minnan (Taiwanese), Polish, Russian, and Spanish. I'm 1 of the 2 authors (the only Filipino author) of Pimsleur Tagalog, a Tagalog audio course for English speakers. I'm trying to learn how to speak English fully like an American and also how to teach non Filipinos how to speak Philippine languages almost like a native speaker. I'm interested in Anthropology, Evolutionary Psychology, Population Genetics, Prehistory, Fitness, Nutrition and Poverty Alleviation. I enjoy sprinting, kayaking, mountaineering, boxing, stickfighting, archery, playing basketball and tennis, cooking and traveling. If you'd like to meet up or talk, please call me at 916 338 3807. Please also feel free to forward my message to your colleagues. Thank you. -IYU'
