Well, first I just have to say this TEFL course demands a LOT of time. Basicaly have to give up everything but studying. Including; eating, sleeping, eating, sleeping, and anything else you can think of that is not studying. Today we where given our first grammar quiz. Its not a hard test, but it takes valuble time. 

     At this point in the course, we are actualy teaching real students real English lessons. Yesterday I taught my third lesson, and today will be my fourth. Planing a lesson takes all our out-of-classroom time. The next lesson which we will be teaching is a reading lesson. Its used to help students progress in their reading and reading comprehension skills. 

There are two classes and the boss has us switching between the two groups. One group is at an intermediat level, the other is pre-intermediat. I get the intermediat group tomarrow. Fortunaly tomarrow is the last lesson for this week, so I'll be able to catch up a bit.

Some of the best things about traveling to another country? Meeting new people and trying new food!! One of our students is origonaly from Slovakia, and she is making a traditional Slovakian meal for all of us. Of course, we are all helping, but it sounds delicious already!! Czech food is quite good also, but I'm so busy I don't even have time to eat out right now.

     I'll be trying to write more often from now on. The course is getting into a bit of a rountine and next two weeks should not be so busy.

As my British friends would say,

    Cheers!
