Study Trip to Java – Part 1

The next few blogs will be on the Study Trip to Java that the 7th Grade of Sekolah Buin Batu finished yesterday. The students had a great time, the teachers had a chance to talk to students, teachers and administrators of SMPN1 Malang, and everyone was exhausted by the time we returned last night.

We engaged in a lot of different activities: the students studied with their peers and we, the teachers, talked a lot about what curriculum the school is using. I also taught a number of classes during the week, which was a lot of fun. I had a chance to interact with students about their English language classes, and a number of them have taken up my invitation to join my Facebook page to practice their English.

We had incredible hosts who took us to a lot of different venues around the city, particularly Pak Sis who not only squired us around, but cooked for us as well. The students were warm and welcoming to our students and spent some time at our wisma visiting with our students. So, starting tomorrow, I’ll post a few blogs about the trip. There will be photos and videos on this site and on the sekolah buin batu website. So, if you are interested in finding out about how a Junior High works and how our trip went, stay tuned.
