6th Grade in India and in the US

17 08 2009

My 10-year-old niece, Isha, who attends 6th grade in New Jersey, visited the orphanage with me recently. Since there were a lot of 6th graders there, we got together as a group and the kids shared their experiences learning languages in the different settings. They talked about books they read, what kinds of tests they had, and topics they liked to write about. The discussions occurred in Hindi, Bengali, and English.
