Self-Directed Learning

Earol is an outgoing 11-year-old girl from Taichung, Taiwan with a passion for speaking English. She approached our Program Director, Genevieve, at a park to practice her language skills, and ended up inviting Genevieve out to a market visit with her mother so they could continue the conversation. Aside from reinforcing our belief that self-directed learning is an innate part of human curiosity, we also learned that the universal sign for breathing fish works in any language!
