News from Fulbright ETA Stephanie Herzog

StephanieFulbright English Teaching Assistant Stephanie Herzog has worked this semester with English students at Alexandru Ioan Cuza University in Iasi to create a student club called, the English Language Enthusiasts' (ELE) Club Iasi. With the enthusiastic participation and planning of the students, the club has held a variety of activities and events, including movie nights, trivia night, conversation tables, and creative writing workshops. Most recently, Stephanie worked with some of the club members to develop a volunteer project where they visit younger students who are studying English in their classrooms to speak with them about education and their future.

Stephanie2This project was realized when Stephanie and two of the student volunteers visited fifth and sixth grade classrooms at "Al. I. Cuza High school" in Iasi on May 24. The volunteers played games, which they had designed, with the students to help them improve their English and get to know their fellow classmates better. Then, the students all contributed to a class "mural" by each drawing pictures of what they envision themselves as in the future. The fifth and sixth grade students appreciated the attention from the ELE Club volunteers, and were impressed that university students studying English wanted to come work with them in their classroom. In the future, Stephanie hopes club volunteers can make more classroom visits around Iasi in order to reach out to more youth in the community.
