Eyra's School Textbooks
It's amazing to think that Eyra managed to 'survive' the first year of her Elementary year in Korea. She never learned Korean before prior to coming to Korea. But, amazingly she sort of managed to weave herself through the rigorous but cheerful learning at the Korean elementary school.
This is her 2nd year at the elementary school.
And this is the 2nd Korean language textbook or 국어 that she has to master, again.^^
It's a relief that one thing this textbook emphasizes is how to 'lure' and 'make' the students be creative in expressing themselves.
Eyra is now used to using, learning, reading, writing in Hangeul than in English alphabets...: frankly speaking this is something that makes me puzzled+perplexed at the same time.
She's now exposed to all things Korean: either in math or language. She has to learn maths in Koreans' perspective. The environment where she is now living gives a somewhat an additional advantage to this phase. But surely, I have some worries as she will only be staying in Korea until her 4th grade...and by then..we'll have to move back to Indonesia.
Oh, well..I am sure that she'll manage it again.^^
I just love the books: first: my impression as I got these books was like" wow, this is what a book should be like: well, although we can't just judge the book by its cover...I think the colorful covers do indeed reflect the colorful arrays of activities being offered to the students."
