A.H.A.V.A. - English Learned in a Natural Method
October 10, 2012

As a teacher I get to see, first-hand, the impact A.H.A.V.A has on its students. Getting children excited about learning is rare now-a-days. Getting them excited about learning a language is nearly impossible and yet, A.H.A.V.A manages to do so in a fun-filled way. Children who can barely sing the ABC song are actually reading within a month. How amazing is that? From reading for charity with the annual Readathon to amazingly themed writing contests, these kids are learning skills in a language which is fundamental for succeeding in life. Remarkable!

I've learned to love teaching. It's an amazing experience to see a child who's been struggling and finally 'get it' and succeed. It's those moments I cherish.

Teaching these kids feels like I'm guaranteeing their future. How much better can it get?
