Can you imagine me as a teacher?
I started giving english courses to selected employees of Big C....

Je vais deja vous expliquer le contexte. Big C est la filiale Vietnamienne du Group Casino, les hypermaches.
Ils ont ouvert a Hanoi il y a 5 ans. Et c'est enorme. Il y a quasiment TOUT a Big C. C'est meme TROP grand. moi je m'y perd!
Bref, une de mes missions consiste a former ou trainer quelques employes pre-selectionnes par la training manager.

I have 18 pupils. ils ont entre 18 et 33 ans, pour la plupart des femmes et deux jeunes hommes...
Most of them are students, working as cashiers, hostesses or in the customer services department.
They are very motivated, so it motivates me to help them improve their english!

What we did is that we created situations where they are confronted to english speaking customers, so they can be capable more or less to answer in a proper way! for eg, if I go shop at Big C and I can't seem to find let's say the right size of shoes, they should be able to guide me!

I'm really enjoying this part of the job. it's two hours per day during 3 weeks! It's a nice way to interact with people from a total different culture and background et vue que tout est donnant donnant, j'apprend quelques notions de Vietnamien aussi! 😊

It is challenging! They really have no or basic english notions. Et c'est tres difficile pour les vietnamiens de prononcer des mots en anglais, il y a des lettres qui n'existent meme pas dans leur alphabet!

As you all know I am a very very patient person :P So we'll see how it goes! 😊

Chúc ngủ ngon Beirut!
