Tamara Langborne - The hardest part will be saying
So the latest. I have finished teaching with the volunteer program, and have moved out of the accommodation they
have provided. I am now living with a Vietnamese family, and experiencing everything in a new way. It’s more than
awesome!!! I now teach at a learning centre, which I am getting rather great pay for, so can not complain there. I
have just over a month before I head back to Australia, in which I really have to reconsider a lot of things. I’m
still driving motorbikes, have learned a lot of Vietnamese, and can hold a conversation for a few minutes now,
which I’m rather impressed with.
In the next month, I will travel and teach, and have 3 weddings to attend. The hardest thing I think about this, is
the saying goodbye to everyone, you make such amazing friends with the other volunteers, and with your students who
become more friends than students. I will definitely come back and visit. The things I will not miss are the
keyboards, which are very hard to type on, and the heat but I recommend anyone to do what I did this year, it has
been the best thing I have done in life!
