I am an Ex Brit,based in Jerusalem but now living in China , and recently retired from teaching High School English as a Foreign Language.In China I teach University College English.
I love my life, (my home ,my family) but my current dream (apart from more traveling, my continual obsession) is to spend a year or so living and teaching in China. Having come back from a fabulous trip there, I think that it would be a great experience, and the Chinese people are so open and friendly, and desperately in need of English teachers.
Hopefully I can take early retirement soon and fulfill my dream…
Update: Dream coming true! Taken early retirement we are off to teach in Hangzhou,China for a year.
Update 2-finished our first year of teaching in Lin’an and back at home in Israel relaxing with family and friends.Part 2 of China coming up.
UPDATE January 2015
So apparently we are returning to Xiamen for another year. We seem to have got the China bug rather badly and after weighing up various things another year of craziness in Jimei sounded pretty tempting.
We are supposed to be there by March 2015 paperwork permitting…
UPDATE JULY 2014
After two amazing years teaching in Xiamen University of Technology we are back home.Not sure where we will go next-maybe back to China, maybe to another part of the world-Costa Rica,Mexico,Ecuador. The world is our oyster.
