Elizabeth Bekes has been volunteering as the English teacher at Kapawi Ecolodge and Kapawi Community over the past 3 months. With a wealth of experience as an English teacher and former BBC World Service Journalist, Elisabeth has been a great asset to the project in the Achuar reserve. Acquiring a substantial set of brand new dictionaries (despite many a logistical challenge!) and starting an audio-recording practice scheme with her students are a couple of the many successful projects she has begun. We are delighted to be welcoming her back again for a short period in March. She has been keeping an insightful blog of her time living, learning and working with the Achuar…it is well worth a read!
Thank you Elizabeth!
