Tian Ai (Timmy)

Timmy arrived at Bethel in September 2017 and was born in March 2014. He started directly in the Chipmunks class, our English immersion class. He is doing very well for his age and he is picking up English quickly. He is a great helper and often asks the other kids to repeat after him to help them learn English. He’s very inquisitive and asks tons of questions about his favorite subject: cars. He especially loves police cars and makes the siren sound when he is happy.

He came from a southern province in China and had a bit of a local accent and it was hard for us to understand him at first. He was always very patient and would repeat himself or find the object he was trying to describe. We are very proud of how brave and patient he is and we are very grateful to have him with us
