This December marks five years’ since I first arrived in the middle kingdom. One of the most common questions I get asked by my students is: Why did you come to China?
In short, I had been to Turkey and the school there breached their contract. A friend suggested I teach in Thailand. When I got there the government closed all the schools due to a flood. I was boxed into a corner and had limited funds so China was a happy accident. It has proven sometimes frustrating and always fascinating! *blog on this coming up soon.
The next most common question is: Where have you been in China?
So here is the list so far…
Shanghai (2012 and 2016)
Shenzhen (2012-2013, 2015, 2016)
Guangzhou (2012, 2015-to date)
Foshan (2012 and 2013)
…also depending on how you look on things… Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan.
