Summary of Interview 080709A with Enhtuya


Enhtuya is one of six children in her family. As her parents lived in a sum centre, she went to a kindergarten. From 1981 to 1989 she went to secondary school in her native Lün sum. The 9th and 10th grades she studied in Töv aimag’s centre. After finishing school, she was asked to teach in her native secondary school in Lün sum where she has been working since. During this time she attended a course in the Mongolian script, and studied part-time at the State Pedagogical University.


She tells about the kindergarten and the schools where she studied in her childhood. She provides detailed information on what children ate, what games played and what lessons learned in these establishments. The building of her elementary school had an open oven heating, which rendered the classrooms smoky. When she was in the third grade, the school moved to a new building. The same year she was made a pioneer. Throughout her school years Enhtuya was appointed as darga of her class. In the interview she explains what her duty as darga entailed.


She also talks about her siblings and their education.
