I really like how it gives an easy opportunity to begin proper English teaching

I really like how it gives an easy opportunity to begin proper English teaching, and that there's no worries on how to live in China and where to teach, as that's all done through the program. So basically doing it makes life easier than with a normal teaching job I suppose. Maybe the problem is that I had to change to teach at a lot of different schools when things happened, so sometimes my schedule would change a lot. And teaching 9 years old children is a lot of fun. My Chinese improved quickly here, but only because of more hours of class and more homework.
China experience is really great!

China experience is really great! I have had a few small problems, with my school and living situation, but nothing too bad! I am really liking the city and have made new friends and I learn more and more Chinese each week. Also the food is great!
I am enjoying my time in China so far.

I am enjoying my time in China so far. I have been given a fixed schedule, with Mandarin and English classes through out the week with two rest days. I admit adapting to the English teaching environment was a challenge in the beginning. Now I feel a lot more confident, the workplace and colleagues are all great. I've jumped on every opportunity to visit the historical and cultural sites around the area. The coordinators here are all very friendly and helpful. I study Mandarin and Chinese Characters whenever i have spare time.

They helped me a lot

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.
