Time is a kind of possession that we have too much, but we use it the worst. In this respect, it is also very important to teach kids' how to manage their time effectively. This starts by learning how to tell the time.
In Turkish culture and in many others also, we say "half past ten" for 10.30. In some other cultures and languages it may be a little bit different and they say "half eleven" for 10.30. This may be a tackle for those living in multi-cultural environments. In Els class, we focused on especially how to tell the "half hours". The instruction was in Turkish, but the Turkish kids were expected to perform it in Flemish. At the end, I saw that most of them got it. Therefore, we made the best of the time that we spent together in these two hours.
