Last week, Brittany Primavera and I (AVIDduo) traveled to Seoul, South Korea to teach and perform at the Jae Young Summer Camp in Yeongdeungpo, Seoul. It was a pleasure for us to be reunited with our old friend Jinhee Yeo, who organized the camp and brought us there to teach with her. The three of us were the primary teachers for this week-long camp of sixty kids age 4-11 working on speaking English, learning about American customs and culture, and music! Each day centered around a theme and had a variety of activities associated with the theme. Monday was Hello and Experience Day; Tuesday was Color and Movie Day; Wednesday was All About the U.S.; Thursday was Music Festival; and Friday was Outdoor Sports Day. In addition, each day, we worked to teach the kids how to sing a variety of songs in English, as well as common proverbs/quotes to practice speaking. Brittany, Jinhee, and I had a blast teaching and making music with the children, as well as performing for them! At the end of the camp, we had a nice graduation ceremony where the students sang their songs for their parents, were awarded certificates of completion, and then Brittany, Jinhee and I performed for them as well. We are already looking forward to next year!
