Please you us about some of your most enjoyable moments of the trip?
Communicating with the other teachers in my school.
Supporting a concert in the school.
Working in different environments, i.e. in the playground and in the classrooms.
Which were the highlights of the lessons, cultural excursions and outdoor activities?
The highlight of the Mandarin lessons was understanding how to order food.
Cycling the city walls and watching the largest fountain show in the world in Xian was amongst the top highlights.
How would you say the overall experience has benefited you?
The overall experience has benefited me by increasing my awareness of different cultures and appreciated for new cultures. This trip has also made me aware of the different teaching strategies Chinese teachers use.
What was the best thing about your experience in China?
The best thing about my experience in China was teaching to children who were able to learn new parts of the English language each day – this was very satisfying knowing that my teaching had a positive impact.
Would you recommend participating to a friend and if so why?
Yes, I think that more people should experience the way Chinese children are taught and to explore a new country.
