English Immersion Camp

The English Immersion Camp, Makunduchi, October 2016
A highlight of 2016 was the English Immersion Camp, set up by Chloe and supported by a 3 local teachers and 3 international volunteers.  For 4 days and 3 nights the students only spoke English.  Class sizes were small and there were a range of activities that were new to everyone.  It was an incredibly powerful, and life changing experience.  The highlights included making chocolate cakes inside oranges on the fire, making lotus flower paper lanterns, exploring creative language in English, a terrifying night game in which the students defeated 5 evil monsters set on taking over the world, a night walk during which the students were silent for an hour and turned their focus inwards, a celebration fire, discussions on what it means to be black and white and singing until everyone lost their voices during an incredibly heavy rain storm.  We're planning to run another English Immersion Course in August 2017 and are looking for volunteers!
