Natalia: “I think about this day often as the best and happiest one in my life”

Natalia sent me a letter from Kaliningrad, in Russia. She also drew a beautiful picture.

Natalia’s letter says:

My best day

I will remember this day for a long time – my first school day – the 1st of September. On this day the children went to school to learn there in a good, interesting and cheerful way.
On this day it was sunny and warm. You could see colorful bouquets of flowers everywhere. Children carried them for their teachers.
My first teacher was called Natalia Wladimirowna. I remember that she was strict, but she had a nice smile and clever eyes. On this day I was a little bit afraid, I felt embarrassed because I didn’t know anybody in the class yet. But we got friends very quickly and learned togehther for 4 years.

I think about this day often as the best and happiest one in my life.

Dear Natalia, thanks a lot for your beautiful letter and the wonderful picture about your happy day! Спасибо ❤
I also remember my first school day. This is really a special day in life. And I’m very happy that it is such a lovely memory for you. I can imagine all the colorful bouquets, that you were nervous in the beginning, but then liked your teacher and the children. I hope that learning will always be fun for you and wish you all the best! Karina.

Moreover, I want to thank projekt Anna and Juliane Staltmaier for sending and translating Natalia’s letter. I’m also very happy about the picture of all the children who sent me a letter from Russia. This is wonderful. ❤ Спасибо

Rommanee: “My first English lesson I was so excited, but I liked it a lot!”

The first letter from Thailand arrived: Rommanee is 14 years old and sent me an amazing letter about her happy day.

Rommanee lives in a children’s home. Her parents work as farmers and live in a village where there is no school. That’s why Rommanee lives in the children’s home because there she has the chance to go to school.

– Thanks a lot to Thai Care e.V. for forwarding Rommanee’s letter to me and to Anne Brouer who translated the letter into English! Rommanee’s letter says:

I like to see my teacher Thea. I am happy that she is a volunteer in our children’s home and teaches English to us. It is good for asking questions. I am very glad because Thea speaks English very well. My first English lesson I was so excited, but I liked it a lot! As more as I learn English I like it more and more.

I like my volunteer teacher Thea, because she teaches funny and isn’t too strict. I love to play English games with the teacher and I am very happy that Thea is here!

– Thank you so much – ขอบคุณ – Rommanee for your lovely letter and the beautiful picture! It’s awesome that you like learning English so much. I also like learning new languages. I had a look at Thai on the internet to write “thank you” here in your language and I think it’s fascinating. 🙂 I hope you spend many happy days learning English with Thea and playing lots of funny English games!
