Hello everyone my name is Denis, I’m from red team, and on this session I was one of helpers and I want to tell you about this day.
Today we had very cool day because it was parents and self-management day. Firstly in the morning we had late wake up and breakfast from 9 to 10 o’clock, so we had a lot of time to prepare for next events. After breakfast we had meeting with parents in zoom where we showed our helpers work and our camp dance.
Then we had Guinness day, where every helper were having own station and it was cool, another campers could just walk on different stations and earn points for their team, and broke records and tomorrow we’ll have prices for best results.
After nap time we had football tournament, it was hard but we won and after every game one of teams showed their dance.
Then we had stations at options, and helpers were the leaders of every station, I leaded station named “Just dance” and it means exactly what you think. I was like a dj and kids were dancing, sometimes I was talking and dancing with them, I think I did my work great and station was cool.
In the end of the day we were watching old classical movie named “Back to the future” and I think it was great, because no matter how many times I’ve seen this movie it always as good as in the first time.
I think this day was the funniest day in the camp and cause tomorrow will be our last day here I want to say “thank you” for everyone who did my time here unforgettable, I love you all.
The helper Denis, red team.
Before I introduce myself, give me a second to express my gratitude to Dima and Elena Kotlyarov for inviting me once again to this radiant place ,that feels so much like home.I am always pleased to be here.
Hello everyone, my name is Michelle and I’m a guide teacher here in MMC. I’ve been here twice and I always find a magnet in my heart that brings me back to this radient place in the heart of Russia.
As a teacher guide, I find it an honor to share my knowledge in the English language with the children. I also learn from them aswell, many of them have very interesting experiences And stories and are not afraid to express themselves in a foreign language. As for those who are still picking up or just starting their journey ,we encourage them at our lessons and stations at options too, where we learn using games or music.
There are other times when we conduct special test preparation classes at stations at option, there we try to equip eager learners with the knowledge they’ll need and help them hone their language skills.
It’s well known that learning languages helps express our feelings, desires, and queries to the world around us, everyone knows that. But! To have the daily motivation to learn a language with a positive mind set is just a wonderful trait to have! And that’s what I see in these children. I think it goes without saying that, « the roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is Sweet! »
In our classes , we have a lot of room for mistakes: be it grammatical or lexical . The most important thing is that the student wants to learn how to fix that mistake . And our guides are here to motivate the children to want to be better in their learning journey and they are here to help them develop their language skills aswell.
Today as everyday, we are going to take another step further in our learning process as our final tests are approaching us .It’s going to be a long day for most of us, but together as a supportive and respectful team , we will succeed. As the saying goes, “we don’t grow when things are easy, we grow when we face challenges”.
Michelle Nemenim, teacher MMC
