Amazing Experience!

When I decided to jump out of my comfort zone and volunteer teach in Italy for a month I had no idea what I was venturing in to. Working with geovisions and You Can Camp exceeded any and all expectations. While living in a country where you don't speak the language and with people you've never met before can be really scary, there was never a day I didn't feel right at home. You Can Camp is organized by wonderful people that have a heart for the kids as well as the volunteers. They went out of their way to make sure our time in Italy was wonderful; they even helped us with organizing activities for us to do during the week after camp like touring the Frassasi Caves and visiting wineries. The other tutors and I spent our weekends traveling. This experience opened my eyes to a different culture and taught me more than I could have imagined; both professionally and personally. I have grown to better understand children, especially ESL learners, and have taken things I learned from camp into my own art classroom. Living in Macerata was a blast! My roommates and I cooked breakfast most mornings and dinner for "family dinner night" in our apartment kitchen a couple of nights a week; we also ate in town some nights and got to know the gelato shop really well! ;) After enjoying an amazing lunch at the restaurant we loved to explore the little town and often took the train to enjoy the beach in Civitanova. I left Italy with new and wonderful friends from all over the world! I definitely recommend this program to anyone looking for an amazing experience abroad.

Summer in Thailand!

This program was not only a month of fun, touring, teaching, and excitement, but one that really opened my eyes to the world around us. The program kept us going and experiencing all that Thailand had. We did everything you could think to do during our time there. Teaching the kids was an incredibly rewarding experience and I will never forget the joy on their faces seeing us at the school every morning. I loved how we also worked with organizations to help them solve real problems that they are dealing with and help them with the solution implementation - the "fieldwork" set-up went beyond sitting in a classroom and working on a case study. They program had the perfect balance of work and play! We got to tour the area, enjoy the food, and culture that Thailand is! Leaving was definitely hard and I hope to return soon.

Unique experience in Thailand

The program was very special and I got to experience Thailand both culturally and through working with different NGOs there. Staff was very helpful and supportive throughout the journey. We got to visit tourists attractions as well as teach English to Thai school children. Overall, it was a very unforgettable and irreplaceable experience, where I get the chance to develop useful skills such as communication and presentation skills as well as immerse myself in the Thai culture.

An amazing cultural experience in China

The main reason I decided to take part in this program was to able to travel to China. I was really interested in the convenience of the program and how it would easily allow me the freedom to travel and explore whenever and whatever I wanted. I would teach a family English and have a place to stay in China and meals provided for me. I could leave to explore whenever I wasn't busy with English lessons. After a bit of time though, I have discovered that this unique situation of living with a family in another country and teaching them is much more than just a place to sleep and eat. It has been very fun to travel to another country and see the different tourist attractions, but staying in and spending time with the family was even more fun. We have exchanged cultural beliefs and practices and learned a lot from each other. Being able to share my culture and also learn about another country's culture has made my time abroad very fulfilling. I feel more pride for my own country, more aware of other cultures, and also less ignorant. This programs offers a very unique opportunity to be able to travel to a new country and experience another culture from a unique perspective that cannot be attained by traveling there normally. This experience has been so unique and I would not trade it for the opportunity to see any landmark or tourist attraction.

My family shared a few songs that they like with me. They were very popular American songs which was a little surprising. Many popular American artists like Queen and Michael Jackson are well known in China which I found very interesting.

I have gone to most of the popular tourist attractions in China like the Hutong Markets, Lama Temple, Houhai, Wangfujing, Beihai Park, the Olympic Village, Tiananmen Square, the Summer Palace and the Temple of Heaven. I would recommend trying to visit all of these places, but most of all, I highly recommend trying to see the Great Wall. This was by far my favorite place to visit in China so far. There are multiple parts of the Great Wall that people can visit, but I went to a part of the Great Wall called Jinshanling. It is a bit farther from Beijing than other parts of the Great Wall, but it was well worth the extra distance. Apparently, this part of the Great Wall is much less touristy and fewer people go there. This part was also restored less than other more popular parts of the Great Wall, which I really liked. More ruined and original parts of the Great Wall can be seen. It is not as easy to visit the Great Wall as it is to see the other places I mentioned, but I highly recommend trying to visit the Great Wall while in China, and visiting the part that I went to if you can.

I haven't been to any sports games or matches, but I have been keeping up with the Olympics. My host family and I have been watching the Olympics together every chance we can, I obviously cheer for the United States, but whenever China is in an event, I cheer for them too with my host family. Usually, my host family and I end up cheering for both the United States and China.

My goal for coming to China was to explore the country and learn about the culture here. Also, I wanted to gain experience teaching English and also maybe adopt some of another culture's practices and traditions. My goals have not changed much, but I have added learning a bit of Chinese to my list of goals. I am happy to say that I am achieving my goals and will continue to work towards them.
