Well that is the thousand dollar question.
- Although we have taken the exam, we still have a long way to go to where we can speak Spanish half as well as we speak English, so we will continue to learn - read, study verbs, meet with intercambios, etc. And of course, since we won't know if we pass or not for awhile, we have to keep in the back of our mind that it is possible we will have to retake it in November.
- TESL Certificate - we will be using English as a ministry and although I have taught for years and have two college degrees related to teaching, I feel a need to have a piece of paper that says I am qualified to teach English. I have started an online certification course that I hope to finish in June. It's supposedly 150 hours, but I am hoping that my education background might make it go a little faster.
- In July we have an 11 day city wide campaign. So, needless to say lots of details to finish during the month of June and then after the 11 days, lots of work afterwards. After the campaign we also have a couple from Moody Bible College with us for a week as they do part of their internship.
- At the end of July we are hosting another Moody Bible College student who is finishing his TESL college degree and will be helping us teach English twice a day for two weeks. Great chance to meet lots of new people!
