Today we accompanied a high school student and experienced the similarities and differences that the education system in Nicaragua compared to the U.S.  has to offer. Our High School’s grade system goes through grades 9-12 and Nicaragua’s goes through grade level 1-5. Half of the students go to school in the morning from 7:15 am to around 12:00 pm and the other half begins around 1:00 and come out at 6:00 pm. The student that I shadowed had favorite actors like Bradley Cooper and Johnny Depp. He also loved electronic music and DJ’s like Steve Aoki. I think it is safe to say that we share very similar interests in music and movies. Today was also our second day of English tutoring. Even though our students would get rowdy, we would try our best to calm them down and teach to those who were ready and excited to learn.
