One week down...
Believe it or not, but I actually started working this week. I didn't do anything special; I introduced myself, then asked the students questions in English to get an idea of their level of English. The first three classes went well, although I was stretching for things to ask the kids at the end of the hour. The next day at the second school didn't go so well. The kids were a lot rowdier.
Anyway, at least they haven't eaten me yet.
I'm heading to Arras on Saturday, and I'll be going to the Vimy Ridge memorial on Sunday.
