Expect the unexpected. You will have to go through a lot of adjustments before you establish routines and feel at home.
You must be willing to learn and adapt to different ways of doing things and to realize that different is not always wrong. Do not compare how things are done in Honduras with the way you did them in your country. Some things are just done differently.
Expect to see poverty and great wealth, many times side by side.
Most of the childrens’ parents don’t speak English and this makes teaching English more challenging. You might have to explain words that your kids in your country would normally know. You also must deal with subtle cultural patterns that sometimes create tension. Try to always remember that you are going teach for a period of 10 months, so embrace the new things as a whole new adventure!
