Emails from a teacher in the Philippines
We are hoping to learn about other countries and cultures and share our knowledge of the Philippines. ... I hope that you might like to have friends in the Philippines.
I think part of the magic for my students is that they really like having friendships. That therefore sparks interest in their friends' country and other things. ... Filipino children are really friendly and great to work with.
