part in the TEIC programme in China was an amazing experience. The
opportunity to travel to China to teach English was too good to
miss out on. Not only was I able to help develop students oral English,
but I was also able to learn Mandarin myself.
China itself is a beautiful country and I was able to experience
its beauty in full during the Chinese New Year vacation. In total
I had one and a half month’s holiday and was able to travel
most of China. I visited the beautiful Sichuan Province and the
famous Terracotta Warriors in Xian. In addition to travelling in
China I was able to travel to most of the South Asian Countries,
including Thailand and Malaysia. None of this would have been possible
had I not gone to teach in China. For anyone thinking of teaching
in China my only advice is you would be crazy to miss out on the
opportunity. Get out there as soon as you can as you’ll love
it and never forget the experience.
