在今天Read Play Love的活動,我感覺到小朋友的活力! 也非常感恩他們願意離開自己的comfort zone,努力去學習她們抗拒的英文! 令我好有滿足感!

Read Play Love is a service program aims at teaching English and promoting learning habits among children in low income families. I initially doubted my contribution, as I am the only English-speaking person in my group. However, it’s surprising how active and appreciative the kids are. I actively engaged them in storytelling, vocabulary learning, and they are very friendly and warm in return. Now I learn that once I give out my best to serve the recipients, the service becomes more meaningful.
