Teaching English

The senior couples were asked to teach English at the .  The school was being visited by BYU Hawaii, LDS Business College, and one other institution to look at and to help improve their curriculum.   The teachers at the college wanted to know English better to be able to better communicate with those that visited their college.  The 5-Senior couples took turns in teaching English during the months of December 2014 and January 2015.  Each couple taught 8-lessons, we taught Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays with the exception of a few holidays. Our hosts picked us up at the Service enter in the morning, gave us a good lunch and took us back to the Service Center.  We were able to see an improvement in English understanding and communication in the people  who attended.  Elder Moleff also reviewed several of their business pamphlets that were translated from Thai to English to improve the English readability.  It was a experience for all the persons involved.
