Saturday 23 October. Last day of Language school

As you all know, I am not good at farewells and today marks the end of our Language school training. The morning session for our group was spent revising verbs but also involved a practical discussion about negotiating the bus terminals.

I am relieved that Mama J has alerted me to some of the challenges I will inevitably encounter! Five of the Vols had organised a guide to take them hiking up through the mountains to the waterfalls. Initially I was disappointed that I couldn’t go as my foot would not have survived the distance but....realising that language tutors are expensive and I had lots to learn, I changed my disappointment into productive energy. The mountains are going to be at my backdoor during the whole 2 years I am here!
Group evaluations were completed, teachers awarded us with certificates and new notebooks and sang us their farewell songs after which we reluctantly farewelled the departures.
