Twenty questions, please by peterdegraaff

Twenty questions, please

...for our school project. Borobodur has many school excursions and the children will seek out westerners to practice their English, by asking 20 questions and writing down the answers. They also will ask to have their photo taken usually with a mobile phone to prove to their teacher they have had an encounter.

This way it should be a more fun way of learning the language..Melody looks pretty amongs the school children. when we were in Mexico at a Starbuck'sfor the internet we met a gentleman there who spent his time with yourng Mecxicans teaching and helping them with learning english..we saw him quite frequently with different pupils and thought it was a great idea to help them that way.

Practice makes perfect, five kids, does that mean 100 questions. Lovely shot

How interesting. The intricacy of the carved stone blocks of the shrine is awe inspiring. I love the thought put into the children's project. They will come away with a lot of knowledge from it.

I love this one, Peter, but I'm dying to know what the 20 questions were! Must be the journalist in me because I ask questions for a living.
June 24th, 2012  
@lauriehiggins Haha. What is your name? Where do you come from? do you like Java? What do you like about Java? Etc. until it got to.. Do you have email, are you on Facebook, can I be your friend to which the answer of course is no.
