While walking around, I noticed the enormous difference between adults (30+ years old) and kids/students.
First group, in spite of daily dealing with english speaking tourist, could barely speak that language.
On the other extreme of the scale were kids aged 7-12 and students.
Have a look at the following pictures and try to guess, what is going on there?
The answer is, they practice english with foreigners. Met individuals as well as groups with tutor.
I was approached by random kids. All of them spoke english on much higher level than adults, even 7 year olds. They were asking me typical questions, like a hobby, about my country, travel plans and so on.
One girl though performed a mild game technique on me. Asked
– what do you do before going to sleep?
I answered that I read a book, watch TV, browse internet…
-Well, no, she said. You close your eyes.
Their natural curiosity and openness will make them powerful, I’m convinced about it.
