Could use some advice

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru

I'm due to go to China in February to teach english for six months, and I have absolutely no idea what to expect.

So I was basically wondering if anyone has been to china/taught english/travelled with GAP Activity Projects(the group I'm going with). If so, I would really appreciate any stories or advice that you could offer, because I'm absolutely shitting myself and have no idea how to prepare for my trip.

    cool. which bit of china are you going to? i went to hong kong a few months back, to work in a school for a couple of weeks.

    it was a private school though (the education system is a bit odd out there - private fees are sometimes subsidised by the govt). all the kids spoke really good english.

    but i guess thats not the kinda place you're going to.

    i really cant help that much, as i found the language totally incomprehensible (although everything in HK is subtitled). but the food is amazing, the culture is stunning, and the country (or at least the bits i visited or flew over) is beautiful.

    dont 'expect' anything. just go with an open mind, and prepare to be overwhelmed. best of luck <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;
