这星期，Willem，Language Hunters的公司总裁,去俄勒冈州的海边出席一个会议，所以我需要自己教我们Language Hunters俄语和爱尔兰语课。我教的学生是差不多六到十二岁，都很想要学新的语文。这星期真的给我看环境真的对 Language Hunting 有很多影响。
教俄语课的时候， 我跟西班牙语和音乐老师需要都在一个课堂在一样的时间教我们的课，所以我们的环境一点热热闹闹。因为我们的环境是这样的，我的学生一者在看右边或者看左边很少时间在看我想要给他们看的东西。我问为什么他们一者看左边一者在看右边的时候，他们给我说是因为我们的环境是热闹的。我这样学到环境对Language Hunting 有很大的影响。
This week, our other Russian teacher is attending a conference on the Oregon beach, so I am solo teaching the Russian classes Language Hunters is providing to a local private school. The children in this class range in ages between six and twelve, and they are all very excited about learning a new language. This week of solo teaching has really taught me how much of an impact an environment has on Language Hunting.
While teaching Russian class, I noticed that there was a direct correlation between how quickly the students were able to pick up new material and how quite and focused their surroundings were. When the music class took a break, the kids were able to absorb the new Russian ideas much more quickly than when the music class was playing. Similarly, when the near-by Spanish class was playing a loud or active game, my students became distracted, as did I.
