Muddling through in Austria, God and life, teaching and gardening plus the occasional cow

Teaching

I’m having such a ball this year! I have one returnee, a lovely girl, who really doesn’t need my teaching! Someone who has worked for me and a neighbour!  There is one lady from Hungary. Two are struggling, two are shy, two are gigglers, two are whisperers, one can talk for the Olympics! One who has managed to be on the course for five days in six weeks! But they all get on well. When we had a chat about the recent elections, I was surprised at how right wing they all are, mostly in light of how the local asylum seekers are getting so much, and they get no help at all!  We have internet, a beamer and individual computers one day a week. Mega!

Oh, I so want to do more teaching and less holiday house cleaning!!!!!

Teeching

As you read this, I will be have been back teaching my annual English course for over a month. The Job centre or AMS has had to make cut backs and this may be the last, as there is now a Government change and maybe now the emphasis is on German courses for immigrants. I’m hoping to get some training and move into Online teaching. It would be great to work from home!

On the information day, I had one lady who has survived one of my previous courses, a neighbour and a woman who has worked in the holiday houses for me.  There is the possibility of some interpersonal problems with some who know each other  already and that the AMS may swoop and check if my Gender and Diversity training is up to date. Daft for an English course, but forewarned is forearmed!

I’m really looking forward to it as I write, but how will I be feeling when you read this??????

September cows

The cows and the sheep were all down two weeks early this year due to the cold weather and the snow on the tops. After a few days things warmed up and as Swingle and I went for a walk in the nearby fields, they all seemed to be enjoying the sun and being stuffed on the rich low grass!  A couple of days later there was a surprise in one of the fields!
