Science and Business graduate Afra spent six weeks in summer 2017 volunteering to teach English at summer camps in Shijiazhuang and Beijing, China.
How was your experience on the program?
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!
How was your experience as a solo traveller at camp?
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.
What did you learn from taking part in the program?
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!
