Miranda's visit to St. Patrick's

For my first vocational visit, I went to a private bilingual school. Since I've taught English to adults and children before, this visit was related to teaching positions I've had in the past, not my current job. I was really impressed with the students that I met and observed. They were 11 and 12 years old and they could speak English really well. They asked me so many questions (all in English) about the U.S. and my life. Some of their favorite topics were music (one kid really liked Guns and Roses and kept asking me what my favorite song of theirs was--I had no idea), famous people (when I told them that Nicole Kidman lived in my town they were really excited), and Obama (they knew a lot about Obama and had a lot of really good things to say about him). My favorite part, though, was when this kid randomly asked me what I thought about cloning. Like he thought that since I was from the U.S. my opinion on cloning was somehow important or something?! I don't know, but it was funny and it I had no idea how to answer. I think I just mumbled something really fast in English and moved on. All in all it was a fun day and the kids wanted me to come back the next day. Kids are great!
