Yasmeen makes use of English skills back in Israel

As I came back home a month ago and figured that I am good enough to teach kids English, I decided to start volunteering in my mom's bilingual pre-school called Q Pre-School. I read English stories for kids daily, we sing songs in English, and we conduct most of our conversations in English. Since I've started doing this, my parents and I thought that my trip to the U.S. is actually having a good impact on me—especially dealing with kids and teaching English for them. I find it really cool to do this five days a week for six hours a day. I feel that it is fun and worth doing it. The kids are actually loving me and I am really happy about it.
