Laura, Malawi II

Laura - Definetely Come to Malawi!

 

Malawi is beautiful. SO BEAUTIFUL. It is so green! The people are very welcoming and helpful.

 

My placement at Mountain View School for The Deaf comes with its own set of challenges, of course, but I don’t want to be anywhere else! I love the children, the sign language, the school campus and the ways the teachers try to drill us with Chichewa. Everything is so relaxed (it’s impossible to plan anything) but we have learnt to just go with the flow and appreciate every day. Teaching with its little challenges brings Georgie (my partner) and I so much happiness, watching the students learn – but not just learning- actually being eager to learn, to see what new things you are going to bring to them is the most rewarding experience!

 

Africa is amazing and if you are thinking about travelling to Africa for the first time Malawi is definitely a good starting step.
