Ms. Nicole's Peak Life Experience: Reading to the children at Aria's school
Ms. Nicole was invited to be the "mystery reader" at Aria's school in Tokyo. Mystery readers come to read a book in their bilingual (English/Japanese) school. But since it's Japan, they are not satisfied with littles only being exposed to 2 languages: I was invited to read a book in Russian. I was SO NERVOUS! I seriously rehearsed many times to make sure my pronunciation was good, I was capturing the rhyme and rhythm of the story, and I was keeping it precisely to 15 minutes including Q&A. I shared "У Меня Зозвонил Телефон" and it was a HIT! Faces blurred to protect the littles.
