I started teaching (virtually) at Sias in August 2020. I am teaching Oral English in person for the Spring semester! Getting to China during a pandemic is no easy feat. Oh the stories I could tell. It is been a wild ride; however, without reservation I can state every experience, moment, tear, frustration has been worth it!
Embrace the culture. You won’t agree with everything — that’s ok. You won’t like all the food — that’s ok. The important is that your life will be enriched and changed forever!
