Week 4 At Langmobile English Immersion Summer Camp
Hi again, welcome back to another week of English Immersion everyone. This is Meagan writing back to you before I leave on my family vacation. Today I will be telling you what we are doing this week, YEAH!!
I want to start by saying that here at our “Camp de Jour Immersion Anglaise”. We have a lot of families that send their children here to learn English. But we also have a lot of English kids that come to our camp to participate in our English activities. Why? Because they are fun! What I am learning is that those English kids have to speak FRENCH with the other kids during breaks if they want to make new friends. Just like the French kids have to speak English! So once again Langmobile is more then just an Camp de jour immersion Anglaise it is also a Camp de jour Immersion Français!
Doug the coordinator and me!
Another thing that you do not know about me is that I was born with a hole in my heart so I had to go through open heart surgery when I was young. My parents did not know what was going to happen with me, they were waiting for hours and they were scared. My parents asked the doctor a question, is Meagan going to die but it did not turn out to be that way. Today I can say I do have a gift, look at me now, I am talking, I am walking and I am writing to you even though I have a disability. I know I am not perfect but I am smart and unique in my own way. I wanted to share this because it is important to know that even though a child is born with a disability they DO have opportunities and should always try to go further than their disability. As for me, I will not let my own disability bring me down and not get in the way of my own success. I always was taught to dream and now I can say that my dreams are coming true. Working with the kids and writing is my life-long dream and I realized my own dream all because I followed my heart.
This week at Langmobile English Immersion camp was another week of meeting new friends, smiling, being happy, being positive, learning every day and having fun.
