Ella Smith joined our project at Winnerway foreign language school in Dongguan in summer 2017. Please read on to view her feedback:
Please can you tell us about some of your most enjoyable moments of the trip?
The most enjoyable moments of the trip were some of the activities within the school and the trip to Yangshuo at the end.
Which were the highlights of the lessons, cultural excursions and outdoor activities?
The children in my lessons were lovely and I found teaching really fun, and the trip to the museum was really fun for both myself and the children.
How would you say the overall experience has benefited you?
It has significantly increased my confidence and made me seriously consider teaching as a future career.
What was the best thing about your experience in China?
Being in China was probably the best thing in itself, I’ve never been before and I really enjoyed experiencing the culture. The teaching itself was difficult at first but once I knew what to expect it was so much fun.
Would you recommend participating to a friend and if so why?
I would recommend participating because it was a really fun experience.
