Study in Australia 3. Take in a New Culture Many students who choose to study abroad are leaving their home for the first time.

We had no idea what we were in for. Thais are a carefree people. Many Thais think westerners stress way too much over precise timing. A quiet gymnasium filled with Thai kids.
Splitting the camp into groups 8: With very little preparation, my foreign co-teachers and I begin to organize the entire camp of one hundred kids.
Neither of us has any prior experience working in an English camp, let alone managing one for 12 hours. We designate each kid as a barnyard animal then corral them into their matching animal group.
We encourage all the students animals in the barnyard to make their corresponding animal noises. Despite my embarrassing efforts, they resist making animal sounds. Lots and lots of games. Drawing pictures, singing songs, capture the flag, musical chairs, duck-duck-goose, Marco-Polo.
The list goes on.

The students are sitting around the gymnasium in a huge circle, hesitant to begin the show.
Nobody wants to be the first act to preform. After some serious coaxing, one team reluctantly shuffles to the center of the gym to show us their act. The rest of the teams step up, preform, and step off. Students sitting in a large circle around the gymnasium to watch the talent show.
The winners are announced. The talent show ends. The activities are over.TOEFL Writing Topics.

Managing an English camp at a Thai school can be an exhausting trial of improvisational grit. At least that’s how I’d describe my first camp experience a couple of days ago.
