English Teaching in China program through study abroad. It was a month long trip where I taught elementary-level Chinese students written and spoken English at Tung Wah private school in Dongguan, China.
WHY DO YOU ENJOY WORKING WITH INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS?
I enjoy the refreshing differences between cultures. I like to learn about customs from all different countries and comparing them to my own culture. The differences point out common values, different solutions to common problems, and represent ancient traditions. International students also offer a fresh perspective on American culture.
