This year for the first time our lamas have taken English class with a fully train English teacher from England thanks to Lindsay Young who volunteered to teach them during her stay here at the gompa.


The teachings could take place every morning over a period of one month till the end of March. Children were absolutely delighted from that experience. Lindsay got very good at making them talk in English with each other and surprisingly we could catch some of them practicing their English while playing together or taking shower.



Unfortunately Lindsay had to fly back to the U.K. On her last day we had a very nice exchange of songs and the lamas got given reading books and new school bags. All here are looking forward for her return next year; meanwhile it is very much our wish to receive somebody else who is wishing to teach them English on a regular basis over a certain period of time. If such experience is of your interest please let us know, do drop us an email at thechhimedrigdzinsociety@yahoo.com
