"Who dares to teach must never cease to learn."

Today my students participated in a lesson on introductions and numbers. The last hour was spent playing the Banana grams Word game in three teams. The students enjoyed the game and it was a successful activity. Before going to lunch we met Robinson, the university’s school master (and also Julia’s husband), and took some photos. 

Afterwards we went to the dumpling party at Julia’s house. We practiced wrapping chicken and vegetarian dumplings with the other teachers. The dumplings and the fruit salad were quite delicious. Julia also gave us a tour of her lovely home and all of us appreciated her kind hospitality. Back at the hotel, we later enjoyed a Mandarin lesson from Baoli after dinner and reviewed our team goals. We all agreed that we were helping the students, spreading goodwill, learning about the culture and achieving our personal goals as well. Tomorrow is another exciting day.
