#LastDay at Hammond Hall (Building 15) here in my university in #Zhengzhou #China. Taught here for 3 years – 8am Monday my first semester to 10am Monday my last semester 😭❤ I’ve had so many beautiful, kind, wonderful #students here and made the best kind of #memories.
This summer, I intend to move to a new #province and a new university. 😃 Sadness today, but great excitement for the future!
Lol – explaining MRTS and upper level economics theories to a student via emoji and wechat messenger. 😂
The ways we adapt to the ESL academic class!
Had our first major Mid-Term exam yesterday (your today). Then we took our online computer exams – Three classes of students in 6 hours (+ another 2 hour class I taught). Busy Day!
During my stint as a teacher here in China, I’ve had the opportunity to participate in several different campus activities with the students. One of the clubs I have worked with a lot is called the “Flying English Club.” Filled with a mixture of Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors, the club has a great collection of students from all around. Even some of the international students join in as a chance to meet Chinese students!
Last night, they invited me to a BBQ at one of their teacher’s buildings, so I went out for a night of fun and food. We had such a wonderful time! The students cooked delicious food including sweet potatoes, grilled meat (pork, beef, squid, chicken, mutton), broccoli, mushrooms, green beans, lettuce / grilled greens, tofu, and more. They had also prepared some delicious fruit trays with apples, pineapple, dragon fruit, banana, oranges, tomatoes, and other yummy snacks. So good!
If you have the chance to go out with your students and play, you should take it! It’s not every day that people can have so much fun 🙂
