Patricia Doherty joined our projects at Anyson International English in Nanchang in the summer of 2017. Please read on to view their feedback:
Please can you tell us about some of your most enjoyable moments of the trip?
Meeting my students and my co-teachers. Meeting fellow students from the UK and teaching with them was also very fun.
Which were the highlights of the lessons, cultural excursions and outdoor activities?
The highlights of my lessons were food. The highlight of the cultural excursions were going to see famous landmarks. My favorite activity/cultural excursion was going to Karaoke with my students.
How would you say the overall experience has benefited you?
I think the overall experience benefited me by giving me a real world outlook. There are many internship TEFL programs that make you pay for this experience and with Gotoco all I had to pay for was my flight, insurance and visa fee.
What was the best thing about your experience in China?
Meeting new people, making new friends and experiencing the culture.
Would you recommend participating to a friend and if so why?
I would recommend it to a friend because it is a great experience.
