Testimonials"Teaching in China was the most challenging experience of my career, yet, the professional growth I experienced as a result is worth its weight in gold... or at least western-tasting food."
"This experience made me a lot more flexible as a teacher, as I was thrown out of my comfort zone and had to learn how to cope with this foreign situation."
"Not having many resources at hand yet still being able to teach a lesson, being very creative and innovative."
