I have never taught English before, so this internship was a new learning experience for me which I really enjoyed. My students, the children and the adults alike were eager to learn from me which made me want to do my best in teaching them. From my internship, and through internship-Indonesia I was able to meet a lot of new friends who live throughout Indonesia. This has been a wonderful experience in meeting new people and having my new friends show me around their beautiful country.
One of my favorite memories thus far, was traveling by motorbike with my roommate to her small hometown of Tuban; where I got to meet her whole family and see where she grew up.
Another favorite memory was getting to participate as the judge in the school fashion show where the kids all wore traditional Indonesian clothes. I also got to wear the traditional Indonesian clothes which I borrowed from one of the teachers.
Internship – Indonesia is a very helpful organization to get people matched with the internship that is right for them. They have been extremely helpful in getting all the proper document s organized for departure to Indonesia and they make sure you are getting your needs met during your stay. They have also been great at connecting people. I have made many new friends through this organization and for that I am very grateful.
