ESL 100 - Day 1

Today was the first day of ESL 100 for Summer 2010. I have 23 students on the roster; 19 showed up today. I don't know if the others will drop or if they will show up next week.

The class has students from the following countries (one each unless indicated):
Nigeria
Ghana
Eritrea
Somalia (4)
Egypt
India (3)
Senegal
Congo
Ireland
Morocco
Algeria
Palestine
Taiwan
Dominican Republic

So far, it looks to be a pretty great class.

We're doing something a little different with the curriculum, so it will be a learning process for everyone in the classroom. But then again, it's always a learning process. I learn something every quarter -- about the students, about the world, about my teaching... Just one of the many reasons I enjoy it.
