The future policeman

As promised in my previous blog post (The best school I have ever been to), you now get to know someone from Young Living Academy. In this post you will meet Andres, who is on 7th grade. We did a part of this interview in English without a translator, and the rest with the help of Andres’ English teacher Javier. I am so proud of Andres, who can already speak some English at the age of 11! Read his interview and you will learn why…

I am so happy I got to have a chat with Andres. I love his idea of what he would do with a million dollars, and I think it’s just amazing what things children point out from the world (like the best thing about Young Living Academy being the trees and the grass! How true is that!). I wish the best for Andres and his class mates, who are a bunch of enthusiastic, energetic and fun kids! I love them!

Suomeksi:

Kuten lupasin edellisessä blogipostauksessani (The best school I have ever been to), saatte nyt tutustua Young Living Academyn ihmisiin. Tässä postauksessa tapaatte Andresin, joka on seiskaluokkalainen. Teimme osan haastattelusta englanniksi ilman tulkkaajaa, ja osan englanninopettaja Javierin avulla. Olen niin ylpeä Andresista, joka jo 11-vuotiaana (Ecuadorilaisena!) osaa puhua jonkun verran englantia! Lue hänen haastattelunsa ja saat tietää miksi…

Missä asut?

Chongonin keskustassa

Kuinka vanha olit kun aloitit YLA:ssa?

7-vuotias

Olitko jossakin toisessa koulussa ennen sitä?

Kyllä, olin Chongonin keskuskoulussa vuoden

Miten se erosi YLA:sta?

Siellä ei tarjottu ruokaa ja siellä opetettiin vain matikkaa ja espanjaa 

Mikä on parasta YLA:ssa?

Koulu, puut ja ruoho

Onko YLA muuttanut elämääsi jotenkin?

Kyllä, olen oppinut englantia täällä

Mitä haluaisit tehdä lukion jälkeen?

Mennä yliopistoon ja sitten töihin

Mikä on unelma-ammattisi?

Poliisi

Mitä tekisit miljoonalla dollarilla?

Ostaisin juttuja köyhille ihmisille ja antaisin kirjoja

Olen iloinen, että sain mahdollisuuden jutella Anderin kanssa. Rakastan hänen ideaansa siitä, mitä hän tekisi miljoonalla dollarilla. On hauskaa kuulla, mitä asioita lapset huomaavat maailmassa (kuten se, että paras asia Young Living Academystä on ruoho). Toivotan onnea ja menestystä Andresille ja hänen luokkakavereilleen, jotka ovat ryhmä innokkaita, energisiä ja iloisia lapsia. Rakastan heitä!

❤ Chau!
