Basically I had a year to kill and I made the completely rationale decision of moving to China to teach English as a foreign language. Obviously moving across the world and immersing myself in a completely new culture was very daunting. However, from getting the visa to ordering fried rice, the team made the experience as easy, and stress-free, as possible. They were a great support network - they acted as tour guides around the city, taught us basic Chinese and prepared us for our journey as EFL teachers. Even after they had departed China, they were always on hand through email or wechat. Without their support and encouragement, my experience in China would have been completely different. As for my experience in China - well, I'm still trying to put it into words. I had a fantastic time, creating lifelong memories. I got to see some "different", yet wonderful aspects of Chinese culture.Furthermore, I met the most amazing people, creating friendships for life!
