“My encouragement to you is to enjoy your time here, just set aside that you are out of your normal culture; enjoy Chinese food, learn about China, do some traveling in China. Try to see what the people and the culture is like as 20% of the people are in China. If you understand their mind, thinking, how they live; you are teaching and you are dealing with the young people and you are making an impression on them, it’s good to know what they are like, so just enjoy yourself. ”
