Introduction for myorientallife

The beginning of my fourth year teaching English in China seems like a good time to finally share my experiences namely, the good, the bad and the inbetween! After feeling like I was stagnating in my home country of England, the esorteric beauty and total fascination of the orient has certainly rejuvenated me. It hasn't been all roses; when I arrived the only Chinese words I knew were 'ni hao.' Which, of course, means 'hello.' I've learnt a few more since then (thankfully) and like everything else it's been part of an unforgettable process and I wouldn't change a single day. If you've been in a similar position perhaps we can trade notes. If you'd like to live vicariously through my writing, you're very welcome. Looking forward to being part of the Persona Paper community!

I have never taught English as a second language but it is something I have really considered. It is nice to meet you on here.

It looks like you were one and done here at PP. You never came back to post more of your writings.
