EduCamp Huzhou 2019 - I had a great time!

We were based in a school just outside Huzhou. I wasn't entirely sure what I had signed up for as sometimes the guidance from the host school (not from Abridge) was a little unclear, but we learnt to work with it. On arrival we of course found out more and everyone was very welcoming!

It was cool to be in a 'less mainstream' area as I got to see some parts of China that many tourists may not see. Our lessons were flexible and so I ended up using a STEM theme for many of my lessons in the summer camp. The other activities were good fun and with the other 'foreign teachers' we were able to experience a great variety of food, local sights and cultural activities (including karaoke). After the camp I spent a week in the Beijing area before getting a train (so fast!) back to Shanghai to fly back.

Katie from Abridge Educamp was super helpful in organising things before summer and has made a conscious effort to keep in touch with us after - thanks Katie!

One thing I would say - water fights are a great ice breaker, regardless of age, language etc :)

Would you recommend this program?
Yes, I would

Hey Katie, sorry for the delayed response to your email. I hope things are going well and that people will be able to get back out on your great programs next summer!
