Help Rooms – So Far So Good!
First lessons were given in the framework of the 'Help Rooms' project, which was organized by students of the Master's program in Foreign Languages and Cross-cultural Communication. Tutors have shared their first impressions with us and we asked them what it is like -- to be a mentor. So, the first classes took place and we decided to ask the young teachers how their first lessons were and find out what their students think about their classes.
Daria: 'They do find it quite interesting. Of course they understand that we are not professional teachers yet, we're just gaining experience. I've given two lessons so far and the number of students hasn't changed which is a good tendency!'
Daria: 'First of all, I like sharing my experience and knowledge with others. Besides, I'm happy to have an opportunity to teach German — I simply had no time to work with it because of two basic languages which I study — English and Spanish'.
Daria: 'I hope that "HelpRooms" project will open the door to a great world of teaching for me. No doubt, I will gain useful experience and will make lessons plans which I will be able to use with another audiences in the future. I hope our students will continue this wonderful tradition when we graduate'.
