Friday Night Gang

There are some memories I will keep with me forever from my teaching experience and that is of my "Friday Night Gang". Basically, some parents in the complex I lived at asked me every Friday night to teach four kids for 1 hour. I made about 100RMB for that hour, so 400RMB every month. The money was nice, but I got attached to the kids in a way. That is to say, they were great fun, they had a humourous side and they really showed great appreciation for my effort to teach them. I was also impressed by the progress some of them made; especially Kelly when she came from a background of no English and out-did the others in remembering clothing in English. Kelly and Amy (renamed from Lily) had birthdays on July 1st and 2nd, sadly I was going to miss those days so I gave them gifts in advance and even gave the boys a parting gift. Boy was I shocked! I had some gifts from them too!
So I just wanted to share some photos with everyone because I deffinately don't want to forget them, especially since Tony offered to buy me a house when he gets older so I can stay and teach him!
Their ages are 7-9.
