Great volunteering experience and a chance to get to know migrant communities in Shanghai
Submitted by Sally - Shanghai China | January 23, 2017
A great volunteering experience to teach English to migrant children in and around the suburbs of Shanghai. Shanghai has one of the biggest migrant population in China, it being one of the largest cities in the country. Education for migrant is improving, however still not as good as the local public schools. I went to teach in one of the schools further away from downtown Shanghai and it was a great experience. The children are all eager to learn English, and always welcome us every week. The quality of English teaching is poor in some of these schools and they could definitely use better qualified teachers, but they face difficulties to attract such teachers. Stepping Stones management is also great and helpful. They provide resources for teaching and tips on classroom management, etc. Would definitely recommend this to everyone.
