EXPANI is an initiative started by a group of girls from my class in San Silvestre School, that aims to connect privileged students with children who wish to learn english. All of the classes are cost-free, tailored, and accommodating to the schedules, circumstances and resources of both parties involved.

I taught a girl called Yllari, who was 4 years old. She was only just learning to count in Spanish, so it was particularly challenging to find material that suited her. We ended up playing vocabulary games and watching kids TV shows.

During the first half of the second year, I helped to develop the syllabi for the classes. We met on zoom twice a week to work on PowerPoints about many topics: greetings, food, holidays, shopping, family, etc. We had to make different presentations for the three proficiency levels: beginner, intermediate and advanced. My brainstorming and teamwork skills were benefitted by this experience because of the team effort required to implement our creative ideas into the PowerPoints.
