Thumbs up Into

Hi, I'm a Kiwi living and working in China, currently in a small city 3 hours from Shanghai. I am teaching English and converting Chinese text-book material to esl lesson plans.I like it here as we are few and quite popular. The local bus drivers know all about us and relate it to anyone on the bus that asks. Good, eh?

Hi Zanne!

Welcome to the site! I like your story. It reminds me of when I first got to Korea. The lady who worked at the supermarket next door would tell people about me, even what I usually had for breakfast... But that was over six years ago and foreigners are not such a rare site anymore... Oh well!

Bye for now,

Welcome to the site, zanne! It is nice to be recognized in a foreign country, but sometimes locals look down on foreigners if they've had a bad experience with one. I've seen some pretty rude foreigners in Taiwan and it sucks, because they're just giving all foreign teachers a bad name because of their ignorant behaviour. So, to all who read this, please make sure to be polite and respectful to all others. Remember, you are not only representing your country, but also all foreign teachers.
