Welcome to the students os English House, Buenos Aires
I’ve been too busy to write much since arriving in Buenos Aires almost a month ago.
But today I must interrupt my own work for the Identity Project , to welcome the students of English House to my blog.
Several times in the past, I’ve visited schools of English as a foreign language or as a second language to volunteer as a guest native speaker of English. Each time, I’ve found it a great opportunity to interact with local people, especially local young people, and talk with them (in English) about things I don’t have the ability to talk about in the local language(s).
English House is unique, in my experience thus far, in having an organized program for native English-speaking volunteers who are
willing to commit to several days or evenings a week for a month or longer. English House also is located in one of the majority of neighborhoods that, in this as in most other cities (even heavily touristed ones), most tourists never visit. I’m excited about getting to know Villa Lugana and its environs. Who knows? Maybe I’ll even get to a soccer game of the local team, San Lorenzo , who won the championship of the Argentine first division in the most recent season.
I’ve received a warm welcome from the students and staff at English House, and look forward to getting to know each other, teach each other, and learn from each other in the coming weeks.
