Beesh joined our programme in Shantou city in the summer of 2016, please read on for his feedback.

Can you tell me about some of your most enjoyable moments of the trip?

I really enjoyed teaching, the bilingual festivals, and most of all the trip to Yangshuo.

Which were the highlights of the lessons, cultural excursions and outdoor activities?

The highlights of teaching my lessons was when I gave scenarios to my students and they would have to tell their own story from that point onwards. Exploring China and its culture was a great experience.

How would you say the overall experience has benefited you?

The whole experience has definitely improved me in various ways.

What was the best thing about your experience in China?

I really enjoyed how friendly the group of foreign teachers and the Shantou teachers were.

Would you recommend participating to a friend and if so why?

I would definitely recommend my friends to go teach in China.
