Work environment and People
The children are very sweet and make you feel comfortable, the work environment is just like one at school, the person I was interning under was Nausheen and she was quite helpful.
The children are the best part of the internship
At times there maybe a language barrier for those who cannot converse in Hindi or Marathi
Teaching children takes patience and each child is individual and understands things in their own way.
