Hello everyone! We’re still here, online and now learning English! Because, why not?
Two months ago, we started our online activities, as part of which we have shared selfies, ways of spending free time, hobbies, interests, thoughts, and that is how we got to know each other much better. Then, after a long sitting, we decided to get moving and started training with our personal trainer and volunteer Ivica. But, that is not the end. Last week we decided to learn a little bit, so we dedicated a whole week to learning ENGLISH!
Our volunteers, as well as students, came from a variety of studies, and some of them are studying English at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in Rijeka. English students and students from other studies, decided to transfer their knowledge to our DIP members. They made a lot of quizzes and organized Zoom meetings where they talked with our young people, learned with them, with a lot of laughter and good fun!
We learned which countries are English speaking countries, which are their monuments, and, of course, what are their traditional dishes. Furthermore, we learned some basic words in English and now we can introduce ourselves, greet each other, name clothing items, colors, herbs and animals.
Our DIP members enjoyed the activities which were prepared by our volunteers, especially the joint virtual classrooms on Zoom. Who knows, maybe next time we will learn German language. Stay tuned and you’ll find out!
