Every Wednesday for the last 2 years I have spent the evening with this delightful group of ladies. For an hour and 30 minutes each week they tried their hardest to learn English and I tried my hardest to teach it.
After two years I am proud to say that Evelyne, Ndege, and Martine can speak English. They're a bit timid about speaking, but they can say what needs to be said, express their opinions, and they understand most of my goofy jokes....or at least they pretend to.
Since I'm moving to a new city in a few weeks, last night was our last class together. Evelyne was kind enough to prepare this amazing and yummy spread of snacks for us, complete with champagne ...of course! These ladies really know how to have fun. I can't wait to invite them over to my new place for rooftop cocktail parties!
Honestly, I probably learned just as much about French language and culture from them as they learned English and American culture from me. It was truly a learning experience for us all...and man did we have fun!
