Matt Wallwork joined our project at Winnerway School in Dongguan in summer 2017. Please read on to view his feedback:
Could you please tell us about some of your most enjoyable moments of the trip?
Having dinner with everyone before arriving at the school was most enjoyable and helped the group get to know each other and the staff. The trip to Yangshuo was amazing and a great way to finish the experience
Which were the highlights of the lessons, cultural excursions and outdoor activities?
The highlights of the lessons was teaching my classes everyday. I found all my students to be amazing and wonderful people whom I will never forget. The school provided us with cultural excursions which were very pleasant. The outdoor activities we took the students on were very fun and seeing them enjoy the activity was the highlight of each occasion.
How would you say the overall experience has benefited you?
I have found a new passion for teaching and would very much like to do an experience like this again.
What was the best thing about your experience in China?
Teaching my students everyday.
Would you recommend participating to a friend and if so why?
I would highly recommend the experience because teaching those students was one of the most rewarding things I have done in my life.
