Aya joined our programme in Rongxian (Jinqiao Academy) in the summer of 2017, please read on for her feedback.


Please can you tell us about some of your most enjoyable moments of the trip?

Definitely being with the kids. Bonding with fellow foreign teachers and being shown China by natives were also two top moments.

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

Engaging with parents of students and going out to eat with students was extremely pleasurable and allowed students to more quickly acclimate to my presence.

How would you say the overall experience has benefited you?

Hard to pin down with words, but I have a greater understanding of a new foreign culture and my self-confidence in regards to teaching is through the roof.

What was the best thing about your experience in China?

Bonding with the children.

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

Yes, I would. Aside from being an invaluable experience, the ensuing ego boost only enhances its appeal.
