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

I thoroughly enjoyed meeting new people. It was great to learn and experience a new culture!

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

I loved the teaching. The teachers were all very friendly and welcoming. I was never too far away from help if I needed it. I thoroughly enjoyed the teaching and the relationship I built with my students and fellow teachers over the summer.

What was the best thing about your experience in China?

I enjoyed the travelling, meeting new people and teaching.

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

Absolutely. This is a great opportunity, its not everyday you can go to China!


How would you say the overall experience has benefited you?

I would say this trip has made me more confident in myself. Even though its cliche, anything is possible if you put your mind to it!
