BLOG TUITION

This morning I helped 3 teenage students from Jonathan school create their blogs. They were so eager to learn and I'm glad I could help them. One of them is my favourite boy "Teck Yong". He had to create an email address and called himself ironman.chua. The when it came to putting a title on his blog, he thought while I attended to the other two and came up with "THIS IS MY LIFE". Amazing isn't it?

So for close to one hour today, I taught them how to get started. One of them is hearing impaired but he could read my lips and we communicated pretty well despite my half-past-six sign language.

The other 18yo boy speaks mandarin and he was so shy and told me that I may have to repeat the lesson a few times for him cos he might forget. But after what I saw today, I didn't have to tell him what to do. He has been journalling and his teacher is hoping he will express publicly and I hope this will help him. His mom is very happy that he's learning something new and told me that he's very keen on computers.

Next week we will continue and I'm looking forward to it.

Great...got started on this. Amazing that Teck Yong came up with the title..in any case his English is not too bad. Ya, Kin Yong is a worrier...he was full of worries when I told him about this project...things like what if he needs to go toilet etc!!!
