MOVIE MONDAY - Week 6: English Class

For the past 18 months, Renee has taught two classes each week of the advanced level at Destiny English Academy. This is an English school that was started by a local Haitian. He approached Renee when we first moved and asked if she would consider teaching. She works with advanced students on pronunciation, speaking and listening skills. Most students in these classes are adults, or teenagers. There are many teachers, some local officials, lawyers, and other local Haitians who are trying their best to learn English. 

With the other responsibilities that Renee has taken on with other schools, just this month, Renee has started holding two day seminars once a month instead of weekly classes. When teams visit, we also hold "talk nights" at a local restaurant/cafe so that the students can practice their English and the teams can learn more about Haitian culture and develop relationships with the locals.
