Saying Goodbye to My Students

Yesterday I had my last classes with Junior 1 students. This day was so special and emotional. It was hard for me to look at these monsters I have been teaching for 2 semesters and say “Ok guys, it was nice to meet you but it’s time to say goodbye” but I had to :( . We threw a goodbye party where we were singing songs, crashing jokes together and… having a blast in general as you can see in the photos below :- ) .

Firstly, we raised our glasses full of orange juice to our well-being and bright future :-)

Some students brought my favourite french fries and I was like “French fries in China!? No way!”- very nice though :-)

Most of them looked really happy as we had a great time singing English and Chinese songs :) like these boys

And these : -)

And these : – )

And these students ! ! !

You just need to show them your camera and then they go wiiiiiiiild!

These kids are the happiest I’ve ever met : – )

Like a boss …

Secondly, my monsters took me by surprise writing this on the blackboard…

My last Junior 1 class

 Then I received a card from them saying…

and a beautiful bunch of flowers smelling so lovely!

 I felt so grateful and honoured

 Will miss them a lot

It’s been not only a great teaching experience

but also a great fun :)

Some of them were crying :-( and were begging me to stay :(

Probably the most touching day during my stay in China

Backpack fully packed, leaving this Sunday :):) Adventure! Adventure!

Get insured

"It will never happen to me" said every person before it happened to them. Accidents happen at home and abroad. The difference is that they are usually more costly when you're in a foreign country. That's why travelling without insurance is a bad idea. There's just no excuse to put yourself in such a risk.

>>voice from the crowd<< Travel insurance is too expensive!

>>voice of the common sense<< If you can't afford travel insurance then you can't afford to travel.

Don't take chances and get yourself insured now. Check out our budget travel insurance page.
