“This is my second year to teach in Suzhou .The Education bureau was a great help in enabling me to come to China to teach, they made the process easy and understandable. They helped me settle very quickly into Suzhou and supported me throughout my time teaching here. Suzhou is an excellent city to live it’s a very large city. There are plenty of events and places to visit within the city, it is an incredibly lively and vibrant location to live. Teaching here is a lot of fun, the kids are enthusiastic and keen to learn. Teaching in Suzhou is a fantastic experience and something I would recommend anyone try.”
