The University in China that I am currently teaching at is far different to what I was doing before. My first job abroad was at a buxiban but I always wondered what the public schools and universities were like in Asia.
My first week in China has been an interesting one, I decided to share with you, wonderful audience members, my experiences so far to try to prepare you a little for the rollercoaster that can be the first week.
I was heading to China the first ESL teaching go-around but never made it because my Visa didn’t work out—it turns out they changed a policy right before I was scheduled to head out.

The Olympics are not only a semblance of international community but also insanely fun to watch! The athletes are the best of the best in their sport—they’ve practiced for many years and are a great example for anybody. Why not bring the Olympics into your classroom through some fun games or lessons?
ESL parent support can be a vital tool for managing your class. Perhaps you have a student who is shining in the classroom or maybe a student who is doing somewhat the opposite—it’s always nice to have parental support in the classroom.
