This course was equally challenging and useful for my future teaching in China subsequently. During the course, Brad and Jenny got through a fantastic amount of theory, and later: real time practise, even though I had had no prior experience.
The lessons you teach in real schools are critically evaluated and excellent constructive feedback is given to help you improve. My confidence in a teaching environment, the ability to think creatively and get into the minds of the students took a sharp rise during the latter stages of the course.
If you come here to Zhuhai, you will work hard, make your own flashcards, write your lessons, teach large classes, teach small classes, laugh, cry and have an invigorating experience. I might add that Zhuhai is an extremely pleasant, clean and fun town to be in, with Macau literally on its border. You will probably meet ex-course students of Brad and Jenny in the excellent cheap bar next to the school at the end of the day, who are as welcoming and friendly as them.
Brad has a wealth of useful experience under his belt and Jenny is incredibly charming, intelligent, professional and lovely. We all went for a meal together at the end of the course, which was delightful.
I have found that the variety of schools and different aged children that I taught during this course, prepared me well for classes I encountered outside. There were no surprises. You'll teach students of all ages and learn a lot about yourself.
