Pawel Bernatowicz joined our projects at BOB Shantou in the summer of 2017.
Please can you tell us about some of your most enjoyable moments of the trip?
Hearing from my students that I really had an impact on them. And also spending some of the last hours in Asia with Chinese friends.
Which were the highlights of the lessons, cultural excursions and outdoor activities?
The best moment of every lesson, cultural excursions and outdoor activities was seeing smiles of everyone around, pure joy that the group had was simply amazing.
How would you say the overall experience has benefited you?
I’ve gained a lot of respect for my teachers as now I can better understand their job. It was also fantastic to experience to see life in completely different culture and see people’s approach to life, which truly benefited me a lot.
What was the best thing about your experience in China?
Making long lasting friendships both with people from England and China.
Would you recommend participating to a friend and if so why?
Definitely! Go meet those amazing, warm and welcoming people, enjoy teaching and seeing smiles of your students, while getting to know pure China at the same time.
