The 1st session of Tibet Charity English Language classes (March – May) began after three months of winter vacation. A simple opening ceremony was held to mark the start.
The opening ceremony was attended by the new batch of qualified and experienced volunteer teachers who have come to teach English for the next three months. Two volunteer vets from France also attended the function.
At the start of the function, Ms Tenzin Tsephel, the coordinator of Tibet Charity English Section welcomed the volunteers who have come from various part of the world to share their valuable knowledge with the students of Tibet Charity. Our volunteers included Ms Marlene King Adams, Mr. Noel King Adams and Cristene Squires from Australia. Our Vet volunteer for French Class is Mr. Robert Verite from France.
Teachers took turns to introduce themselves to our students. They all expressed their hope to help our students in the best possible way.
Unlike previous year, this year there will be two semesters of language classes with each session of three month duration. The duration of each class has been fixed at two nad half hours in place of three hours during the previous year.
Mr. Tsering Thundup la, the Director of Tibet Charity offered welcome ‘khataks’ to our new volunteers and thanked them for coming to Tibet Charity to help our students. He requested the students, who are no doubt hard working and disciplined, to make the best use of their time here.
The opening function was followed by the Director’s meeting with volunteers and students separately familiarizing them with Tibet Charity rules and regulations.
