My husband and I have a unique opportunity to co-lead a trip to China this Spring. We will be chaperoning a team of 20-something college students on a quest to bring the secrets of the English language to China. Our trip will span almost an entire month and will be focused on promoting good will and volunteering efforts in several cities of mainland China. Our goal is to bring a bit of western culture to this land rich in cultural identity and social prosperity.
China has always been near and dear to my heart. Having spent two years as an English teacher at North Eastern University in Dalian, China, I learned a wee bit of the language–enough to get by in the bartering system at the local food markets! I am delighted to have this chance to return to the land that created so many wonderful memories. It will be a pleasure to share the secrets of China with my husband.
