The place that I stayed in Romania, is a beautiful city called Brasov, which is located in Transylvania. It is home to beautiful hills, mountains and of course Dracula – or his castle anyway!During my time with English In Action, I was able to teach English in a fun and creative way! I had the youngest of the groups, who were aged between 5 and 8. It’s funny because I always said I wanted to teach older children, but I love teaching younger children, because it is much more creative, you can play games, make arts and crafts, sing and dance, although the latter is not my forte. During my three weeks of teaching in Romania, I taught topics such as colours, animals, places and transportation. In addition to this on a Saturday afternoon I was able to have an arts and crafts workshop, where we made dream catchers, from various different materials.
– Including wishing in a wishing well.
– Including seeing someone propose very romantically outside the castle in the gardens.
While all in all it is a great life experience, teaching experience, cultural experience and so on…the best part is the friendships that I have made whilst out there, which shall hopefully continue long into the future.
