Kelly Doug, USA, Teacher at Jiangnan University

“Wuxi is a beautiful city and its dialect is very special. I hope I can learn a little Wuxi dialect, and traveling in Wuxi will be more convenient in the future.” In an interview with reporters recently, Kelly Doug, a foreign teacher at Jiangnan University, liked the city of Wuxi. Before coming to Wuxi, she had never been to other countries except the United States and Canada, and Wuxi became a window for her to understand China.

Kelly Doug was born in the United States and received a bachelor’s degree in psychology after graduating from an American university in 2012. Talking about the reasons for teaching at Jiangnan University, Kelly Dug said that before coming to Wuxi, an American friend of hers was also teaching at Jiangnan University. After chatting with this friend, she learned that Wuxi has many beautiful attractions and unique characteristics. She germinated the idea of teaching at Jiangnan University and eventually became an English teacher at Jiangnan University in September 2014.” The students here are very hardworking. Generally speaking, communication in English is not smooth during their freshman year, but in the sophomore or third year, most students can communicate fluently in English.” Under her guidance, students improved their oral English ability, which made her very proud.

Connor Bridge, USA

My name is Connor Bridge, 28 years old. I’m from Shelby Montana America. I’ve lived in Wuxi for two years now. I’m still finding new surprises all the time. My home in Montana has 3,500 people in it. it’s got a lot more cows than people and it’s a very boring place to grow up. For fun, we would shoot fireworks at each other and throw old computers off of really tall buildings. But the thing to remember is our tallest buildings there maybe three stories high, so life in Wuxi is very very different for me. I feel very lucky to live here.

I’m a teacher and I have a lot of fun teaching my kids. I’ve been teaching the same children for about two years now. we have a really good relationship in the classroom we have a lot of fun. in my spare time I’m a musician I like to go on stage and sing whenever I also like to play Dungeons and Dragons with my friends and I found that in Wuxi I have opportunities to do this about anything else. I can go play VR games. I can ride motorcycles with my friends. We all bought the same kind of motorbike, so we have a lot of fun. There are always a lot of good parties a lot of good music clubs, there is never a boring day.

I also love food. I love that we have a lot of western food if I ever missed home. I love Chinese it’s all delicious to me. I especially like Lanzhou Lamian. Wuxi is a wonderful place to live I love it here and I don’t have any plans of leaving. I hope more and more people can come to Wuxi.
