Science and Business graduate Afra spent six weeks in summer 2017 volunteering to teach English at summer camps in Shijiazhuang and Beijing, China.
When I first arrived in Beijing, I was full of hope that the next six weeks would go well. Looking back now, they far exceeded my expectations!
During my time at camp, I had the pleasure of meeting amazing people. My hosts were some of the kindest people I have come across, the students were all energetic and sweet, and the other volunteers made up an intelligent and adventurous group.
I learned a lot about teaching, China, and myself. I’m so glad that I had this opportunity and would definitely encourage those interested to apply!
