Orientation and Placement

 This was our first chance to meet all of the Intensive English Language Program students. We gave them a bit of an introduction to the teachers and to each other and then the logistics of what they needed to do to get through the placement tests.
We teachers worked in pairs to interview each student and give them a reading comprehension test having them read a short passage and then giving comprehension answers orally. They then did a written test. The interviews took from 10:30 am until 1:00 pm and we still had two people left to interview. After lunch we finished the last two interviews and then marked all the written tests. The fun part was divvying up the students into classes with similar abilities. I landed up with 11 students. I will be teaching the highest level. I will have ten men and one nun.
I am looking forward to meeting my group of students tomorrow morning after breakfast.

Now the real fun begins.
