• 1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
  • I was in Malaysia working in a girls school where I was helping them study English. I would go in and help the girls set up their stationary and get ready for the school day. Once the day began we would let them continue with their maths and other subjects that they would learn in both Malay and enough and if they were struggling with anything we were there to support them. They already spoke some sort of English so it wasn't very hard but it was rewarding getting to know the little girls and know we've left them a little better than they were before


  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
  • Yes a lot. I have learned patience and have valuable it is to have it. As they were young girls they were Easily frustrated when they were getting things wrong so I had to let them know that it was ok if they made mistakes. I also learnt the value of teaching


  • 3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
  • I enjoyed the programme very much as it was very rewarding. It was hot weather over there too. It was also a Muslim country so I learnt a lot about their culture whilst they were learning about mine. It was very fun and very serious at the same time so I did enjoy it a lot because it's something I can see myself doing in the future

  • 9b. Why?
  • Because I felt that I was very appreciated while I was there because they showed s lot of respect to me. The young girls learned to respect their elders so that made me feel very valued and respected.

  • 10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Secondary School?
