My main role focuses on reviewing and continuing to deliver the English for Hospitality curriculum at Sanon Training Restaurant in the beautiful historic area of Bagan.
I’m also currently mentoring Sanon’s social worker – Khin Lay to take over the teaching role. She’s a fast learner, has a fabulous sense of humour and is competent in English. I think she will make an excellent teacher.
We have 23 (post school) young people from all over Myanmar taking the one year course. All have various levels of disadvantage but are very keen to forge ahead and improve their lives – so are delightful to teach.
99% can read and write English which helps – but few understand what they are reading so this is part of my challenge!
