LeaderetteForeign teachers come to China, after a short-term training in Buckland, they have a more specific understanding of China and China's education. Therefore most of them are well integrated into local society and the work of the school. They work and teach hard, get along well with Chinese and make great contributions to the school. Some foreign teachers build a profound friendship with local students and teachers. Some of them even decide to work in China for a long time. Foreign teachers are in China. Their actions create a lot of foreign cultural and educational exchange stories. The moving stories are passing from mouth to mouth with approbation. Because material collection is not very comprehensive, the stories we put here only a small part.

David1. One foreign teacher David Bartlett comes from New Zealand. He has worked in China for many years. He was initially working at a school in Guilin, Guangxi for a whole year. We can learn from his book Teaching at Sunny School: when he "experiences new life," what true feelings does he have.      ( Learn more.. )

On the eve of his return home, he jumped into the river and rescued two drowning children in China.

7. In Hunan, a number of foreign teachers won awards in the Hunan Province Foreign Experts Bureau essay contest. Their article reflects these foreign teachers’ feelings about teaching in Chinese schools. Reading these articles, we can feel that China is gradually walking toward the world, and being understood by the world. The world is also getting closer to China. Multi-cultural exchange and integration is becoming a reality. The foreign teachers naturally brought international perspective, new thinking ways, new educational concepts and methods to the local schools, which would change the schools and local communities. And the developing China would leave them good memories. Here we have chosen two of the awarded articles. || Click: 1. Natalie Connell (U.K.),   2. Mr.Curt (U.S.A.),   3. Mr David Schendel (U.K.)

Laurie9.  Laurie and his wife Betts were originally professors at a Canadian university. After they retired, they came to visit Yangshuo. They thought Yangshuo was so beautiful, and Buckland Group was also like a warm family, so they decided to stay in Yangshuo. The couple worked together and went to some local rural primary schools to teach. They also organized more than 200 foreign volunteers to come to Yangshuo to teach Spoken English. So that about 2000 children could learn "super English" for free. Therefore, the couple was known as "foreign Lei Feng"(Lei Feng is a People's Liberation Army soldiersi,he is a Chinese example who helps others without asking for anything).
