Young reporters cover Guanren volunteer project
A basketball-themed English class was held at Caipu Community in Xiang’an District of Xiamen on November 17, 2019.
A total of 25 pupils from Caipu Primary School attended the class and two young reporters from xmenglish.cn, the city’s English portal, covered the event.
The participants told the young reporters that the class was great because it allowed them to improve their English while they were participating in the specific basketball training.
These kids were coached by Alex, who teaches English at Xiamen University and also volunteers for Guan Ren International Community.
During the lesson, Alex taught them not only basketball basics for beginners, but also basketball terms and phrases in English.
The class is a volunteer service given by Guan Ren Educational Activities Team (GREAT), who are always trying to find new, interesting ways to motivate local kids to learn English.
