The Volunteer Series: TEFL in Photos | Chengdu

For the past two months I’ve been volunteering as an English teacher in Chengdu, China. I taught sixteen classes a week: 10 junior (year 8) and 6 senior (year 11). As part of my volunteer series, I’ve put together a post of my past two months in photos.

Included are:

  • some bits of my two-day orientation around Chengdu
  • teaching classes
  • exploring Chengdu
  • school life/activities
  • a short trip to Xi’an during one of the holidays
  • photos of and with students

Enjoy!
