Natalia joined our programme in Shantou (Shantou Bob English) 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?

The faculty was so caring and always looked out for the teachers. The amount of trips we took and great food we had was amazing.

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

I loved going to Nanao island, going to Yangshuo, and getting to know the students in and out of the classroom.

How would you say the overall experience has benefited you?

It has opened up my world so much that I decided to stay in China and work for a training school in Beijing.

What was the best thing about your experience in China?

Getting to know my fellow Chinese teachers at the school in Shantou. I am so grateful for the experience to get to know teachers my age and be able to call them my friends.

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

Definitely! The program was extremely well run and thoughtful about the volunteers.
