They helped me a lot
Submitted by Ida - - | October 20, 2016
It was a slow start, but I got along with the child very well. Everyone was really helpful especially Fanny, I could text her anytime and she would always help me.
I don’t have any problems at present, but my biggest problem during my stay was not knowing exactly what I am supposed to do and when the schedule was a problem at times, but it got better the longer I stayed, I think because I get more used to Chinese culture.
My biggest reward was seeing Teddy remember the English I taught him and him wanting to learn more,Seeing his English developed, learning to know the family and it was great when Teddy told me something or share me a new toy, not because he had to ,but because he wanted to. I felt like they wanted to have me around ,which was nice.Learning enough Chinese to get by and understand some things.
Sometimes I had communication problems, because we didn’t have a common language. So It was a bit difficult to explain more complicated things to the parents.Teddy was helpful and he translated daily stuff.Bigger things I sent to Fanny and she translated them to the family.
Some kind of schedule is really good to have. It makes things a lot more simple. If you have any troubles or difficulties with the host family. Talk about it as soon as possible.it's probably not as big of a deal as you think it is odds are. It's a misunderstanding of some sort. it took me about a month to at least get a little used to Chinese culture.give it time. if you have any problems, don't hesitate to ask Fanny or someone else from the agency. They helped me a lot during my stay in Beijing.

My main responsibility was Teach English to 10 years old boy. I had some communication difficulties because only the hostson speaks English. But luckily translator app helps.
