Can you tell me about some of your most enjoyable moments of the trip?
Teaching in China was an amazing and interesting experience. It gave you the opportunity to teach children from a range of ages and English-speaking abilities. I really felt I was making a difference to the children’s future while having fun at the same time. The camp was in a beautiful area of the countryside, so alongside teaching there were many other things you could do as a tourist. The nightlife was also great, as there are many western bars and Chinese clubs, so there was ample opportunity to get away from work and have fun too.
