She came to work with me at 5 and sat in on my beginners' class, which is always a lot of fun... so it was a good introduction to language teaching. She is a qualified teacher, but this languge teaching is quite different from normal classroom teaching but I'm sure she'll have no trouble adapting.
We stopped off for Bún Chả on the way home. And of course, she agreed that it is simply fabulous food!
This morning I took her with me to the church class. It was packed... we had at least 40 students, including one guy from China! There was plenty of lively fun and discussion as usual and I was delighted to have Toni share the teaching.
After the class a bunch of us went again to Sunflower Cafe to chat. Time flies by as conversation doesn't stop. It's a beaut way to get to know newcomers.
Going around the table clockwise is Xuân, Trung, Diep, ? , Linh, Thai, Trung, Sáng, Trung,
Toni, Linh, Kien, Đạt, Thảo, and Nguyet
Thảo offered to help Toni buy a bicycle if she wants one and to go shopping with her... That's by far the best way to get around... go with a local!
The boys dropped us off at Big C where Toni bought pillows, doona, towels, ... even an ironing board!! and of course, bánh mì for lunch.
Yep, she's in the swing of things already... and it's only day 2!
