The lesson in our book today was to talk about the problems in our school, how we would fix them, and (using ‘I think’ and ‘I believe’) tell what we expect in the future. I have only been at the school for a total of four days so I clearly have a lot to learn. The major problems listed by the students were as follows, and more or less in the following order:
Lack of a gym
The library is too small
There is no laboratory to study science
Students don’t have access to the internet in the computer lab
… and finally….
There are no lights
For some reason they didn’t seem to think that the fact that the school has no running water or the fact that a class of 8 students often shares 2-3 books were problems though.
