Experience In India

Posted By Katrina Pluss on 23 Apr 2008
Firstly, School! It has been quite hectic recently, the kids have been studying for there end of year exams, we have been conducting reading assessments within 2 schools and we have helped with a creative writing competition. The reading assessments were good and gave us a lot of contact time with the children so we got to no them more as an individual rather than just a child from a certain class.

A Month Gone

Posted By Katrina Pluss on 05 Mar 2008
So a month has nearly gone and I am still having a fantastic time. I have had many more experiences of Bangalore and India in General. I still love the teaching and the kids are still absolutely fantastic. The last few weeks we have been given more responsibility with the kids. We are currently running English assessments for the whole school. At the moment we are completing Jayanagar and they we will be going onto the other 3 schools around the city to do the same assessments.

My First Week in Bangalore

Posted By Katrina Pluss on 04 Feb 2008
Ok, so i have been in Bangalore for over a week now and i have already experienced a large slice of Indian culture. I absolutely love this country, it is so completely different from England- it is impossible to explain how unless you can experience it for yourself! My home stay is lovely and she has made me feel very settled very quickly. She cooks lovely food and plenty of it! Her apartment is lovely, plenty of space and I am looking forward to the other gaper who will be joining me very shortly.
