Mona Curtis: Teaching American English in China.

Mona said that she wanted to visit China for quite some time now. For the past several years she worked at TVCC teaching English as a Second Language to Spanish-speaking people. Recently she combined her desire with her skill and accepted a job in China teaching American English to large classes there. A big difference for her is that she speaks Spanish, but did not speak any Chinese when she accepted the job. Kudos for your bravery and sense of adventure, Mona!

Mona still owns her home in New Plymouth. I expect that we will see her, back home here again in a few years. Meanwhile we can experience a little dab of China vicariously through her reporting. If you would like to follow Mona’s “China Journal,” “friend her” or “follow her” on Facebook:
